ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Dougherty County Charter school will be featured on a nationally broadcast show. 

The United States Department of Education had a crew at International Studies Elementary Charter School Thursday, taping segments for "Education News Parents can use." That's a show that airs monthly on Public Broadcasting.

The school is being featured because it's considered innovative, and was designated a National Blue Ribbon school.

"This is important because we need to showcase examples of schools that are actually meeting the goals of No Children Left Behind, that have high expectations of their students and demand a lot of participation from their parents," says Producer David Terry. 

Zeda George, Head of the School, said, "This is a wonderful school and they are on the move and next year will be better than ever."

A live broadcast, featuring head of school Zeda George will be presented on PBS September 16th from 8:00 to 9:00 PM.
