ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Dozens of educators talked to state leaders like representative Rynders about making education better.

Some of the nearly 6,000 members Georgia Association of Educators in our area showed up to this years banquet.

GAE invited state leaders to talk with the group about addressing issues in the classroom.

"We're talking about smaller class sizes, we're talking about the paycheck and the teachers and their efforts going on in the classroom like bullying," said Rosa Ward, GAE S.W. Ga. Field Representative.

"Being able to have those conversations it no only educates and empowers them it also lets the legislators know what issues they need to take back to craft better legislation," said Jeff Hubbard, GAE President.

GAE dialogues like this have been ongoing for more than 20 years.

The group plans to go to the capitol in January to continue talks with law makers.
