As always, the quality of Georgia's public schools is a top priority for legislators at the State Capitol. One of my top priority remains the quality of Fayette County schools. This year, the General Assembly passed important legislation to free local schools from rigid mandates and one-size-fits all policies. Georgia has over 180 school systems and a one-size fits all approach simply does not work. You can be assured that I will continue to fiercely defend the local control that school administrators, parents and teachers exercise over our community's schools and the education of our children. I am a product of the Fayette County schools and my children will attend Fayette County schools. I have a vested interest in maintaining the high standards and integrity of our school system for my children and yours.
