Parent Choice in Education

Did you realize that the Georgia Dept of Ed. has implemented a new policy beginning in August that states that public schools will no longer accept credits from home school entities or non-traditional education centers?  This is unconstitutional and takes away PARENT CHOICE.  As the owner of a non-traditional educational center, we are fighting this discrimination.  WE have petitions at our location or I can send you a paper petition (nancyg@tntacademy.com) for you to get your friends, associates and mainly Parents to sign against this new policy.  You can also go on line to change.org and put in Georgia Accrediting Commission and the petition will pop up for you to sign.  WE already have over 1300 names just from summer school alone.  We have legal representation and will continue the effort that Gwinnett has forced the GA Dept of Ed to put in place.
This will force public school parents(Gwinnett ) to only use their public school to make up credits for credit recovery or use the Give Center if their child is paneled and expelled from school.  The whole policy is forcing you (the parent) to use only public schools.  This is YOUR CHOICE- PARENT CHOICE- not a government choice of what to do with your child.
