Atlanta – If you haven’t yet registered, there’s just one week left to sign up for the Georgia Public Policy Foundation’s Leadership Breakfast on Thursday, April 26. The event features two legislators at the forefront of the bipartisan campaign for school choice in Georgia: Rep. Jan Jones, Speaker Pro Tempore of the Georgia House of Representatives, and Georgia House Rep. Alisha Thomas Morgan, speaking on the topic, “Choice Matters: Expanding Educational Opportunity.”
The event at Cobb County’s Georgian Club will provide an overview of the education issues addressed by the Legislature in 2012 and what lies ahead. The Georgia General Assembly voted for school choice during the session, passing legislation to give voters a say on state-authorized public charter schools. Georgia voters will decide on a constitutional amendment on the ballot in November. For more information on the speakers, go to http://tinyurl.com/d3rzbnb.
