ATLANTA (AP) - The Center for an Educated Georgia is planning a rally at the state Capitol to celebrate National School Choice Week.
Organizers say the rally Thursday is aimed at spotlighting the need to expand educational options for all children in the state - including options to attend homeschools, online schools, hybrid schools and others.
Organizers Wednesday said former WNBA star Lisa Leslie is scheduled to speak at the event, which will culminate with students telling legislators how expanded school choice options have impacted them.
The event is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. on the steps of the Georgia State Capitol on Washington Street near Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.
