ATLANTA — The state Board of Regents has approved a plan to increase the number of students who finish college.
The board approved the "Complete College Georgia" initiative during a meeting Wednesday to address statistics showing that 42 percent of adults in the state have some kind of education past high school.
The plan calls for more cooperation between the University System of Georgia and the Technical College System of Georgia. It also will focus on helping Georgia's public schools produce more college-ready graduates.
The plan must also be approved by the Technical College System of Georgia before it is presented to the governor's office. It is part of a $1 million grant Georgia received in August from the Complete College America Foundation.
