Albany/Dawson -- 60 education, business, and government leaders from across Georgia bused to schools across South Georgia Tuesday.
The 13th Annual Bus Trip across Georgia stopped at Robert Cross Middle Magnet School in Albany. The Bus Tour is sponsored by the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education.
The business and education leaders visited class rooms, like Mr. Fix's sixth grade Math Class, where students have shown real improvement. Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education President Stephen Dolinger said "They have really improved student achievement and student discipline. So we wanted to bring the people on the bus here, so they could see what's going on at this middle school and bring it back home."
Bus Tour sponsors say by showing some of the best schools and their new ideas, those practices can be shared across Georgia.
The group also spent time with some of Terrell County's brightest students.
State School superintendent Kathy Cox listened as students at Lillie Cooper Primary School in Dawson reviewed a list of words. She admits being impressed by the kindergartners who are able to read just a month into the school year.
"Its really important that we all get into the actually schools and we see for ourselves what is or isn't happening around Georgia. This bus trip is about promoting what is happening, so that when we talk and we try to make policy, or we try to make decisions, we have education and educated decisions about what we're doing," Cox says.
The bus will also tour schools in Cordele, Tifton, and Fitzgerald.
