Please help us stop Georgia Washington Middle School from being sold to the town of Pike Road for 11 million dollars.  This is a historical site that the Montgomery  County Board of Education wants to sell. The whole city of Montgomery, Alabama will be affected by the sale and will force the district to start re-zoning district lines.  The staff and faculty members will be transferred, fired or even forced to retire. By selling the property, the students will be forced to attend "failing schools" even if they do have passing tests scores. One issue is where are the original documents showing what was donated and how it was to be used. Georgia Washington's grave is located on the property of the school which the contract stipulates must be maintained.  The 500+ students, faculty, and staff deserve to continue with the original dream that Ms. Georgia Washington had started in 1893 with those four boys.  Let's keep her dream and legacy alive.
