It would also allow teachers to petition to have a principal removed.
While briefing reporters about education matters coming before lawmakers, a pair of opposing-party legislative leaders from Atlanta sparred politely over partisan differences toward the bill.
Rep. Ed Lindsey, the House Republican Whip, described his bill as one that encourages parents to get involved with schools and local school boards.
"Parental involvement is an inherently good thing," he said.
However, the House Democratic leader, Rep. Stacey Abrams, warned that the bill could lead to abuses here as it has in other states like California or open the door to unscrupulous, for-profit companies that recklessly manage charter schools as has happened in Florida.
"You don't want this to become a tool to bludgeon schools into behavior that might not be for the best of kids," she said.
House Democrats haven't formally decided to oppose the bill, but she isn't the only one speaking out against it.
Lindsey argued that passage of a constitutional amendment in November to allow the state to grant charters to start-up schools over the objections of local school boards is proof that most Georgians want more charter schools as a way to improve public education. Abrams disagreed, saying confusion about the description of the amendment on the ballot muddied that interpretation.
