Education forum teaches local candidates

June 6, 2006

Albany-  Potential education policy makers got a lesson of their own today at Albany Technical College.  The Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education along with the Georgia School Board Association partnered up to hold an education forum. The forums are scheduled across the state for candidates planning to run for education policy seats. 

"We talk about accountability, we talk about testing, we talk about school funding and finance all the things they're going to be questioned about on the campaign trial but more importantly things they're going to make decisions about when they get into a policy position," said Stephen Dolinger, President Georgia Partnership. 

Tuesday's session was the third of eleven statewide. The group will be in Valdosta Wednesday.
