Share your opinion with your legislator — over free coffee!

Coffee Challenge

The Center for an Educated Georgia (CEG) is excited to launch our new initiative: The School Choice Coffee Challenge!

At the state Capitol, State Senators and State Representatives are busy discussing important education legislation, and they need to hear from you. Take part in the Center for an Educated Georgia’s Coffee Challenge by meeting with your legislator to tell your school choice story. Tell The Center for an Educated Georgia about your meeting, and you will receive a $10 Starbucks gift card and be entered to win a $100 gift card!

Your legislators want to hear from you. Legislators say that five calls or visits from their constituents significantly impact their stance on important education policy issues. We are more than halfway through the 2012 legislative session, and as the session kicks into high gear, legislators want to hear from their constituents to help guide their votes. Georgia Governor Nathan Deal recently emphasized the importance of K-12 education this session in Georgia, so make sure your voice is heard about this vital issue.

Personal stories are the most powerful tool for conveying the importance of supporting school choice legislation, because stories show how policy changes students’ lives. If you benefit from a school choice program – like a charter school, special needs or tax credit scholarship, online education, or homeschooling – tell your legislator how this program has changed your life. If you do not have access to a quality school option, tell your legislator why you need access to more options.

Please visit  www.educatedgeorgia.org/coffee for details and information on how to participate.

Thank you for playing an active role in improving education in Georgia!
