As the son of educators and the product of our public schools, I understand the needs of our state's education system and I believe quality education is the bedrock for community's economic growth. Our district is blessed with some great schools, but the state as a whole, we are ranked at the bottom of the nation. Georgia is almost last in the nation for high school dropouts.
We can't afford to fail our children and creating a financial burden for the state. I am passionate about giving more local control to parents and teachers, not bureaucrats in Atlanta. Remember, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results.
