State is addressing many issues

There is a common saying about government and politicians that government never acts until after there is a crisis. Unfortunately, you don't have to look hard to find examples of this. Just look at the prices at our gas pumps. Gas prices did not climb above $4 a gallon over night.

Prepare students for world, not just tests

It is a fact: Students in Georgia and the nation do not measure up to their peers in other countries known to provide a world-class education. While the debate continues over who's to blame and policy-makers pay lip service to preparing students for the 21st century - here for almost a decade already - the U.S. education system muddles on as a 19th-century model.
