It’s pretty clear that the federal No Child Left Behind Act isn’t living up to its name, despite good intentions. Too many children are still being left behind in our public schools.
That’s an intolerable situation in this day and time when Georgia and the rest of the U.S. are competing with the entire world for economic success. Coming away from that ongoing struggle with a sufficient level of job-producing economic growth requires in good measure a workforce that’s fit and ready for the 21st century and what it will demand of workers. That’s where schools come in.
