Georgia’s Failing Schools?
Georgia’s Failing Schools Is A Widespread Problem
The issue of failing schools is affecting all types of communities across our state. According to the state’s own assessment, at least 500,000 kids are limited to schools that are failing or underperforming, making it more important than ever to create education alternatives that will better prepare them for work, relationships, and the real world.
This interactive map allows you to zoom in on a specific county or school to see which schools have been ranked by Georgia’s Department of Education as having a D (yellow) or F (red) grade.

WHAT IS THE PROMISE SCHOLARSHIP?
Understanding Promise Scholarships in Georgia
Solution for A BETTER EDUCATION
Every Child Able To Access Quality Education
We have long advocated for children to be able to access the education that best fits their needs. Each child and family is unique which means that each child learns in different ways. While most will find what they need in public schools, we must open up options to parents and kids seeking unique education options.

What Georgia Parents Are Saying About Education Choice
“Our family fully supports both public and private schools. But one size does not fit all for every child or every family—and unfortunately, that means extra out-of-pocket costs for families who choose different paths to properly educate their children. Promise Scholarships would empower parents to do what they think is best for their children, whether it’s a family like mine that requires flexibility for a unique circumstance…or family that simply chooses a private school option. Our tax dollars should follow the child and meet the individual needs.”
“Our experience at the private school is night and day. I remember my daughter saying, ‘Mom, I don’t think I ever want to leave this school. Everyone here has a disability and it’s not a big deal.’”
“There are so many other families like mine in Burke County. We basically have no school choice here, as the only private schools around do not have special educators or services and our closest charter school is 35 minutes away. Home education is our best option so that we can tailor an education to the unique needs of our children. Promise Scholarships would provide the type of resources to ensure that our children are not left behind.”
“Our adopted son, Joshua, has been in upwards of 20 schools during his educational journey. Joshua suffers from dyslexia and dysgraphia. The solution we need is the \Promise Scholarship, but we’re losing more and more time as the years pass but the bill doesn’t. Joshua is a smart, bright child, but he can’t advance the way he needs to right now because he doesn’t have the necessary resources.”

The increase in enrollment once again shows that parents are looking for options, the question is how will we respond to the demand.
