Episode 22: Ridgeview and Sandy Springs Education Force
Jun 3rd, 2019 by sellingsandysprings
Today we sit down with Opie Blackwell, Irene Schweiger, and Dr. Lashonda Mills to discuss more about the public schools in Sandy Springs and all the wonderful programs that SSEF implements to support our public schools.
Why We Do What We Do... Sandy Springs has high achieving students and award winning public schools. However, almost 60% of our public school students are economically disadvantaged.
Poor children are 7 times more likely to drop out of school than their wealthy counterparts. Last year, over 140 Sandy Springs seniors (20%) did not graduate high school.
