I’m working on some statistics for the petition. Out of the 12380 signatures that I am working with, 10048 or 81% are residents of Georgia; 6718 or 54% are educators, academics, or scientists; and 5148 or 42% are both. There are also 181 Steves.
These signatures represent forty-five institutions of higher learning, both public and private, in the state of Georgia. They also represent forty-eight states, the District of Columbia, and twenty-three foreign nations.
