Bi-partisan rally to drum up support for charter schools

ATLANTA -- A grassroots bi-partisan charter school rally is being planned for Saturday, Oct. 27.

The rally is being held by Moms for School Choice, Heritage Preparatory Charter School and Georgia's Voice for Educational Choice. It has grabbed the attention of members from both political parties.

"The theme of the rally is 'Charter Schools WORK!' because charter schools work for students, families, communities and Georiga," Mom for School Choice member Kimberly Cochran said in a statement.

So far, Ga. Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers (R-Woodstock), State Rep. Alisha Thomas Morgan (D-Austell), DeKalb County Board of Education member Nancy Jester and Cherokee County Board of Education member Michael Geist are scheduled to attend the rally.

The event will begin at 10 a.m. on Oct. 27 on the campus of Heritage Preparatory Charter School, which is located at 3350 Greenbriar Parkway SW.
