The committee's vote comes weeks after an Atlanta education policy group suggested some scholarship money was used at two North Cobb religious schools that ban gay, lesbian and bisexual students.
The Georgia Senate Education and Youth Committee on Monday unanimously endorsed legislation intended to strengthen a state tax credit scholarship program that has been the target of weeks of criticism. Senate Bill 243 now goes to the Senate for a full vote. If passed, it would "give preferences to students with financial needs," according to a copy of the legislation available on the Georgia General Assembly's website. The committee's vote comes weeks after an Atlanta education policy group suggested in a January report that some scholarship money generated through the tax credit program had been used at religious schools that ban gay, lesbian and bisexual students, including North Cobb Christian School and Shiloh Hills Christian School. …

Student scholarship organizations "do not receive a single penny of Georgia tax funds," an official said.
Weeks after an Atlanta education policy group suggested that some scholarship money generated through a Georgia tax credit program had been used at religious schools that ban gay, lesbian and bisexual students, a student scholarship organization this week issued its own report. Faith First Georgia in Marietta operates the SSO that makes it possible for needy students to attend Shiloh Hills Christian School, one of two North Cobb schools mentioned in the January 2013 report from the Southern Education Foundation. North Cobb Christian School was the other one. In a statement distributed this week, Faith First Georgia chief legal officer Jonathan Crumly Sr. said that the foundation "misstates the law and misleads the public to promote its …

Schools that "exclude, condemn, and demonize students for who they are and who they accept in their lives" should not receive public funds, according to a report from an Atlanta education policy group.
Some scholarship money generated through a Georgia tax credit program has been used at religious schools that ban gay, lesbian and bisexual students, according to a report released this month. Two of the schools mentioned in the report from the Southern Education Foundation, an Atlanta education policy group, are in North Cobb. At Shiloh Hills Christian School in Kennesaw, the standard of conduct policy is clear. A student who says “I am gay,” “I am a homosexual” or “I like boys” will be expelled. "We are who we are," administrator John Ward said Tuesday afternoon. "We're very open about who we are. There's nothing secret about who we are and what we stand for." And North Cobb Christian School in Acworth "reserves the right to refuse …

St. Francis ends the Eagles' season in the first round of the GHSA playoffs, while Mount Paran reaches Round 2.
Take your pick of which tweet summed up North Cobb Christian's stunning 65-63 home loss to St. Francis in the first round of the Georgia High School Association's Class A boys basketball playoffs Saturday night: Perhaps North Cobb Christian, ranked No. 1 in Georgia in Class A, was looking ahead to an expected second-round game against second-ranked Whitefield, the team that knocked the Eagles out of the playoffs last year. Perhaps the Eagles had a letdown after completing an undefeated regular season with a Region 6-A championship win over crosstown rival Mount Paran Christian. Perhaps the regular-season schedule wasn’t rough enough to prepare the Eagles for tournament pressure. Perhaps St. Francis played its best game of the season. Or …

North Cobb and Harrison win road games to start the girls playoffs.
This year’s Georgia High School Association AAAAA girls basketball tournament started out just like last year’s—with Region 4-AAAAA dominating. Meanwhile, the AAA tournament started even better than it did last year for Allatoona as both the girls and boys won during a home doubleheader Friday night. In 2011, the Lady Buccaneers dropped their opening game at Columbia, 58-35, but playing in front of the friendly Acworth crowd as the Region 7-AAA champs Friday, they beat the Gainesville Lady Red Elephants, 54-45. Elise Spann led Allatoona with 26 points, including 10 in the fourth quarter, when the Lady Bucs used an 8-0 run to break open a tie game, The Marietta Daily Journal reported. They’ll stay at home to play Columbus, a 63-55 winner …
