ATLANTA (August 22, 2012) – Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers (R-Woodstock) has earned an A+ Rating on the Center for an Educated Georgia’s Legislative Report Card. The center is a part of the Georgia Family Council, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting educational advocacy and research. This distinction was awarded to lawmakers who continually demonstrate an unwavering commitment to advancing education reform at the state capitol.
“Investing in our children means ensuring that education remains top priority in our homes, in our communities, and in our legislature. We must see that education reaches every child in our state and the only way to accomplish this is through educational freedom or choice. I am honored to be considered a champion for education reform and pledge to continue fighting for the individual student by creating more options and the opportunity to choose among them.”
The Center for Educated Georgia’s Report Card lists current legislators’ votes on major education legislation since 2007 in three areas – school choice, public charter schools, and public school reform. According to these votes, legislators were assigned a grade in each category and accessed a final letter grade equivalent between A+ and F. Legislator’s grades are available online at www.georgiafamily.org/reportcard .
“We appreciate Senator Rogers’ strong support for better education in Georgia and congratulate him on an A+ rating on our legislator report card,” said Eric Cochling, vice-president of public policy at Georgia Family Council, the home of the Center for an Educated Georgia. “He has demonstrated a clear commitment to improving education for all of Georgia’s students.”
Sen. Rogers also recently received an A+ Rating from the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, Americans for Prosperity and the American Conservative Union.
