I think this means the state high school graduation rate rose by a notable percentage statewide and at these three schools in particular. The governor and the school chief would not take their show on the road to announce so-so news. This very public and very broad sweep on Tuesday suggests that Sonny Perdue and the state have something to celebrate.
One of these schools has not yet told its students the governor is coming tomorrow and I was torn about listing that school, but my teenager assured me that no one under 17 reads newspaper blogs so I feel reassured:
Here is the release:
Gov. Sonny Perdue and state Superintendent of Schools Brad Bryant will make a series of surprise announcements at three Georgia high schools Tuesday.
The high schools are North Hall in Hall County, Eagles’ Landing in Henry County and Glynn Academy in Brunswick.
