Georgia supporters of virtual public schools to rally in Atlanta

Georgia parents and students who support virtual public schools plan to rally on Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. at the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta.

A virtual public education is delivered primarily at home through a broad-based curriculum that is appropriate for a child's grade level. A state-licensed teacher oversees instruction, testing and government accountability standards just as in a regular school.

Supporters will be meeting with several Georgia legislators and present awards to five who have voiced support for virtual public education.
