Good Job Georgia Lottery Party

good job? fleecing it's players in order to give that much to education (which is doubtful) where do you think all that money came from. hint: players lost it because of skimpy payouts.

    put some respek on ga lottery

     

    They pay well.  Great payouts..

     

    Best in america

    Let's hope that GA uses the money to improve the schools, so a high school grad knows how to spell "respect".

    All things which are similar and therefore connected, are drawn to each other's power.

        Where do poor people get the money to play the lottery?

        They work for it in GA-no welfare or food stamps for the working poor GA  Americans; only foreigners.  Sounds like a nice amount but Georgia is almost at the bottom of the 50 states rank in Education.  Where is the money going? With all that money  all our kids should be at the top no matter what their economic status is.  My opinion only!

          They claim ALL the money goes to Special education, HOPE scholarships and pre-K. Sounds to me that the bulk of that might be administrative cost as I agree with you Georgia's children do rank near the bottom in education.

          Recently many of Georgia's school administrative personnel and teachers were indicted on testing fraud charges in order to receive more federal funding to line their pockets.

          Educating their kids is not the primary goal of Georgia's school administration, fattening their bank account is.

          We have corruption like this nation wide and they need to start cracking down because as a whole the united States spends more per child than any other nation yet our kids are far behind intellectually than most other developed nations.

              Congratulations to them!

              I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

                it won't. just don't believe everything you read. probably 700 million went to administrative costs and the rest went to education. no way over a billion dollars went to it. georgia a fraudulent state and people running it are known liars.

                  there are 181 school districts in georgia. that would be about 5.2 million for each district for their "hope and kindergarten programs".  that check those two smiling corrupt officials are holding is not real. what the people of georgia need to see is a breakdown of that money and precisely outlined on how it was spent. of course they won't disclose that information citing privacy issues. there will be some districts looking for the rest of their 5.2 million but they won't be too vocal as to not be left out completely on the next lottery windfall. where really did the money go.
