“The greatest gift we can give Georgia’s children is a quality K – 12 education which prepares them for a lifetime of opportunity and affords them the ability to provide for themselves and their families. Early learning and literacy development are fundamental to educational success. As Lt. Governor, I’ll prioritize retaining highly-efficient educators, increasing Pre-K access statewide, and increasing economic opportunity so that less students face impoverished conditions that suppress learning.”
