We are trying to raise some money to improve education in the state of Georgia.

From School Choice Week:

• 66% of fourth graders are not proficient in math (NAEP 2009)
• 73% of eighth graders are not proficient in math (NAEP 2009)
• 71% of fourth graders are not proficient in reading (NAEP 2009)

GRADUATION AND DROPOUT RATES
• Only 57.8% of Georgia children graduate from high school, ranking them 48th in the country in graduation rates. (America's Promise Alliance)

As you can see by the statistics, Georgia needs help in education. If the Government won't do anything about it, we will. We are donating our time tutoring middle and high school kids in math, writing, and reading. Hope you can help!
