The price of homes in the city of Atlanta rise according to their proximity to a start-up charter school, according to a new report by Georgia State University. Home prices in suburban areas, exhibit a similar trend, but the price increase is about half that of Atlanta.

On the latter, observed on the last Monday of May, we remember those who died while serving. Many Georgians commemorate these holidays via ceremonies, services, or other observances — a testament to our state’s strong military heritage, derived in part from Georgians who have played significant roles in the evolution of Memorial Day and the state’s long tradition of recognizing military sacrifice.
The Atlanta Comfort Women have found a home – Brookhaven. A statue of a young girl sitting in a chair originally was supposed to have been anchored at the Center for Civil and Human Rights.
