About Atlanta, Georgia
The city of Atlanta is the seat of Fulton County in Georgia. Atlanta is the largest city in the state, the capital of the state, and the 38th most populous city in the United States. Atlanta is a relatively large city, covering an area of 347km2, and housing a population of 486,290. Atlanta was originally founded as the terminating stop of a major state-sponsored railroad. With rapid expansion, however, it soon became the convergence point between multiple railroads, spurring its rapid growth.
The 2010 United States Census reported that Atlanta had a population of 420,003. The population density was 3,154 per square mile (1232/km2). Out of the total population five years and older, 83.3% spoke only English at home, while 8.8% spoke Spanish, 3.9% another Indo-European language, and 2.8% an Asian language. Because of the development of corporate headquarters in the region, attracting migrants from other areas of the country, by 2003, Atlanta magazine concluded Atlanta had become significantly “de-Southernized.” A Southern accent was considered a handicap in some circumstances. In general, Southern accents are less prevalent among residents of the city and inner suburbs and among younger people; they are more common in the outer suburbs and among older people.

The Atlanta Botanical Garden
The Atlanta Botanical Garden got its start in 1976, and has since become the crowning jewel of horticulture and botany in Atlanta. They have renowned plant collections, gorgeous displays, and spectacular exhibitions that make the Atlanta Botanical Garden the greenest and most beautiful place in the city to visit. Sometimes referred to as an “Urban Oasis,” the garden includes 30 acres of outdoor gardens, a children’s garden, a unique canopy walk through the Storza Woods, and the graceful Skyline Garden. Their mission is to “develop and maintain plant collections for the purposes of display, education, conservation, research and enjoyment.” Since the very beginning, Atlantans have loved the gardens, with over 50,000 visitors just 7 years after its opening.

- Atlanta is the only city in North America to have been destroyed as an act of war when General Sherman burnt it to the ground in November of 1864. Only 400 buildings survived the razing, but the city rebuilt itself from the ashes — which is why the city symbol is the phoenix.

Chalk Talk: Changing Stereotypes
Atlanta public schools are redefining one long standing stereotype: Real Men Don't Read. Starting in the 2010-2011 school year, all Atlanta Public Schools second grade classes implemented a ground breaking mentoring program titled Read, Excel, Achieve, Lead (R.E.A.L) Men Read. It was decided that due to the fact that second grade is where students shift from learning to read to reading to learn the program could be most successful at this grade level. The program was a huge success for all involved. The students read more and participated in lively and diverse group discussions. Many schools could greatly benefit from such cutting edge programs. Aside from this program they also have programs for bully awareness and prevention and competitions in technology with categories in graphic design, software design, and animation.
