Sen. Rogers To Receive Award

The senate majority leader will be honored at the Georgia Charter Schools Association's conference

Georgia Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers (R-Woodstock) will receive the 2012 Charter Schools Impact Award during the 10th annual Georgia Charter Schools Association's conference.

Rogers, a strong advocate for school choice, will receive the award during an award ceremony at the conference at noon on Thursday at the Georgia World Congress Center. 

Along with Rogers, Cherokee County School Board member-elect Kelly Marlow of Canton will also receive the Power to the Parents Award from the organization. Marlow won the July 31 Republican primary for the District 1 school board race. Marlow has two children who attend Cherokee Charter Academy

Where does Chip Rogers get his money? Any ideas?

I hope the poeple of our great state will vote "NO" to the Constitutional Amendment on Nov. 6th. We do not need an ADDITIONAL commission that will have it's members, who will not be accountable, appointed by others who will not be accountable. Vote smart, vote NO!

The award must be very prestigious as Kelly Marlow will also receive it and yet she hasn't done anything to earn any award. Made up award by a special interest/lobbying group?

Vote No on Amendment 1 November 6th! These 2 have done nothing for the students of Cherokee County...they have only protected the 800-1000 students at CCA. This is a joke! Chipster is not going to be Senate Majoruity leader when the session reconvenes and KM is going to show her true colors. Dr. P, Janet and the others who truly support all children will eat her alive.

Sean Murphy said it best: "The ballot question should ask whether you want your local school board, for whom you can vote, to make decisions about your schools; or do you want a small group of appointed people accountable to no one to make those decisions? There is not one thing in the enabling legislation that requires parental involvement so there is nothing local about it, particularly when you see all the out of state corporations paying to persuade you to vote yes."

Just because our politicians are for sale doesn't mean our kids and schools are.
