Albany - - Georgia educators are taking their concerns to lawmakers, hoping to see changes in the classroom.

Thursday, the Georgia Association of Educators held its annual Legislative Banquet at Blackbeards.

State School Board Member Peggy Nielsen spoke at the event. Concerns ranged from excessive paperwork for teachers to problems with discipline in the classroom.  

"You get direct contact with the educators throughout southwest Georgia that lets you know their concerns when it comes to the classroom, what they need, what kind of resources, what kind of tools so we can have a more educated Georgia," Rep. Ed Rynders said.

Rynders was just one of several area state lawmakers who met with educators.
