GA Senate Democrats Release Plan to Address Failing Schools

This week the Georgia Senate Democrats unveiled their counter to the Governor's School Takeover initiative. We unveiled SB 124, the "Unlocking the Promise" Community Schools Act. This legislation would create a grant program to establish UP Community Schools that would serve as comprehensive service delivery centers that offer academic, health care, and community involvement programs in addition to existing classroom instruction.
