What is the business community of Atlanta doing to help out the atlanta school system?

They might be waiting for the city of Atlanta to finally start making good choices with the money that they do have before they give them more to blow. It truly is a shame that the kids suffer just because of the bad decision that are made in government.

What schools in the Atlanta area that benefit children in special education?

Are you looking for a public school system or a private school. I used to live in the Atlanta area. I worked for Marietta City Schools. If you are looking for public school, their district has the most technology, facilities, and up to date materials for students. Several other public districts are good as well. Good luck with your move!

How can Atlanta stop a team from signing Kovalchuck to a long term deal?

Don Waddell still believes he can Kovalchuk, and he has refused all teams requests to talk to his agent. They've agreed to a 9 yr, $81MM deal.....Kovalchuk just wants it front loaded to the maximum ($11.62MM for the first 5 years) while Atlanta refuses to pay more than the cap hit at that level. Because they can't agree on that...Kovy refuses to sign....but he says he doesn't want to leave Atlanta.

i agree.. it's just really a cool place.. I moved here about 5 years ago and i love it. Here is all u need to know.. And it's so true! LIFE IN GEORGIA This is for anyone who lives in Atlanta, Georgia, has ever lived in Atlanta, has ever visited Atlanta, ever plans to visit Atlanta, knows anyone who already lives in Atlanta, or knows anyone who has ever heard of Atlanta. Atlanta is composed mostly of one-way streets. The only way to get out of downtown Atlanta is to turn around and start over when you reach Greenville, South Carolina. All directions start with, "Go down Peachtree" and include the phrase, "When you see the Waffle House." Except, that in Cobb County, where all directions begin with, "Go to the Big Chicken." Peachtree Street has no beginning and no end and is not to be confused with: Peachtree Circle Peachtree Battle Peachtree Place Peachtree Corners Peachtree Lane New Peachtree Peachtree Road Old Peachtree Peachtree Parkway West Peachtree Peachtree Run Peachtree-Dunwoody Peachtree Terrace Peachtree-Chamblee Peachtree Avenue Peachtree Industrial Boulevard Peachtree Commons Atlantans only know their way to work and their way home. If you ask anyone for directions, they will always send you down Peachtree. Atlanta is the home of Coca-Cola. Coke's all they drink there, so don't ask for any other soft drink unless it's made by Coca-Cola. The gates at Atlanta's Hartsfield International Airport are about 32 miles away from the Main Concourse, so wear sneakers and pack a lunch. The 8a.m. rush hour is from 6:30 to 10:30 AM. The 5pm rush hour is from 3:00 to 7:30 PM. Friday's rush hour starts Thursday afternoon and lasts through 2am Saturday. Only a native can pronounce Ponce De Leon Avenue, so do not attempt the Spanish pronunciation. People will simply tilt their heads to the right and stare at you. The Atlanta pronunciation is "pawntz duh LEE-awn." And yes, they have a street named simply, "Boulevard." The falling of one raindrop causes all drivers to immediately forget all traffic rules. If a single snowflake falls, the city is paralyzed for three days and it's on all the channels as a news flash every 15 minutes for a week. Overnight, all grocery stores will be sold out of milk, bread, bottled water, toilet paper, and beer. If you're told to go to Bankhead Highway and can't find it, It's because the name is Veterans Memorial but the locals still call it Bankhead. Also, once the road you're on crosses another road, the name of the road you're on changes. Some roads names change every half mile or so. I-285, the loop that encircles Atlanta, which has a posted speed limit of 55 mph (but you have to maintain 80 mph just to keep from getting run over), is known to truckers as "The Watermelon 500." Don't believe the directional markers on highways. I-285 is marked "East" and "West" but you may be going North or South. The locals identify the direction by referring to the "Inner Loop" and the "Outer Loop." If you travel on Hwy 92 North, you will actually be going southeast. Never buy a ladder or mattress in Atlanta. Just go to one of the interstates and you will soon find one in the middle of the road. The last thing you want to do is give another driver the finger, unless your car is armored, your trigger finger is itchy and your AK-47 has a full clip. Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air. There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 live in Georgia. There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live in Georgia, plus a couple no one has seen before. If it grows, it sticks. If it crawls, it bites. If you notice a vine trying to wrap itself around your leg, you have about 20 seconds to escape, before you are completely captured and covered with Kudzu, another ill-advised "import," like the carp, starling, English sparrow, and other "exotic wonders." It's not a shopping cart, it's a buggy. "Fixinto" is one word (I'm fixinto go to the store). Sweet Tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking it when you're 2 years old. "Jeet?" is actually a phrase meaning "Did you eat?" If you understand these jokes, forward them to your friends from Atlanta, Georgia and those who just wish they were. Lordy, I love Jawja.


Well, Atlanta is a LOST city. No one can find it and people have tried many times to find and no luck. I think I heard that there was gold or something there and whoever finds it will become REALLY rich. Maybe do a Google search on Atlanta and see what you get. I wish I could find it.
