Carolyn on Education


Like many families in this district, my husband and I moved here because of the quality of K-12 education. But we must not take it for granted. And higher education—a key to Georgia’s economic future—is increasingly unaffordable to so many students.

As Governor Deal and President Obama have both observed, our college graduation rate for 24-35-year-olds in Georgia needs to move from 40% to 60% by 2020. That will take investment across the board, from pre-K through higher education—and job training programs to keep up with a changing economy.
