More from the group's Facebook page:

Georgia's K-12 students are the key to our long-term success and we owe it to them to prepare them well for life ahead. The state's most influential education official, our state school superintendent, drives the direction of education in Georgia.

In so many ways, he or she influences the quality of our state's future workforce and, more importantly, the lives of our children and grandchildren. It is one of the most important roles of any public official in Georgia. Join Americans For Prosperity Foundation, Georgia's premiere grassroots organization for promoting economic and educational freedom of choice and moderator Joel Aaron Foster for a meeting of the minds in this non-partisan, free event featuring candidates for state school superintendent!

Why on earth do you think Roswell Street Baptist Church is in "East Cobb"?

@Beth Because of a media release statement & negligent fact checking. It's been corrected. Thanks.
