Tim Bryant with WGAU (1340AM) just sent a sound clip from Gov. Nathan Deal’s speech to the Athens Rotary Club. It includes this:
If we can get additional federal assistance, I think we can show that we can achieve very positive results. I, for one, believe that we ought to be seriously looking at consolidating the Head Start program with our pre-k program.
Deal said the two programs have different agendas, different schedules and have different criteria for teachers. But …..
“$180 million is poured into Georgia through the Head Start program. I believe if we were to consolidate that, bring it under one unified approach to pre-k – I believe we would be able to show some very positive results in the years to come.
