Albany -- Improving the quality of the teachers in Georgia schools is how the Board of Regents plans to improve education in the state.

 Associate Vice Chancellor Jan Kettlewell says better leadership in the classrooms is how Georgia can help students achieve. Dr. Kettlewell said "If you can demonstrate that you know and can do these things,when you go into the classroom you will have positive results on student learning. So we are shifting our focus from an inputs model to a results based model."

Georgia still has a teacher shortage, but will try to improve the quality of their educators as well as their numbers.
