On today’s POWERTALK w/ Lorraine Jacques White, Ga. State Representative, Alisha Thomas Morgan, and Helen Butler, Executive Director of the Ga. Coalition of the People’s Agenda, stopped by to chat about two very special programs – Race to the Top and Common Core Standards.
“This is especially critical for communities of color; therefore, parents need to come and get the knowledge necessary for these programs to be a success,” states Butler.” Morgan added, “We’re moving, as a state, to a place where we are trying to get the very best of standards all over Ga.”
Participating organizations include: The Mexican American Legal Defense & Educational Fund, The Campaign for High School Equality, The Coalition for the Peoples’ Agenda, The Georgia State Conference and The Urban League of Greater Atlanta.
