DAWSON, GA (WALB) -

A south Georgia woman is leading an effort against a proposal to allow the state to take over failing schools.

A constitutional amendment on the ballot in November would give the governor the power to appoint a superintendent to oversee chronically failing schools around the state.

Tabatha Hollie graduated from Terrell County High school in 2012. 

She doesn't think the proposal is a good idea, and she doesn't think people know enough about it. 

"We don't want our community to be broken up by this new superintendent, these new private charter schools that do not have our student's interest at heart. We know what we need for our communities," said Hollie.

Tuesday night, Holley hosted a community discussion at Terrell County High School. 

She wants people to study the amendment before they vote.
