It’s shocking: Over 100 schools in Georgia say ‘No Gays Allowed!’ – and are still getting public funds from the state!
These schools receive state money despite explicit rules that ban students who identify as gay or lesbian.
State legislators are pushing to increase the amount of money going to these schools with little oversight this year. Before that can happen, we need to demand that Georgia State School Superintendent John D. Barge makes his position clear so accountability from the Department of Education is possible.Speak out now!
