Americus - The head of the University System of Georgia urges one South Georgia college to raise the bar on academics. Chancellor Dr. Thomas Meredith spoke to faculty and students at Georgia Southwestern University on Tuesday.

Meredith is traveling to all 34 state public colleges and universities to encourage schools to set higher standards for students, especially in fields like education and nursing.

"We must produce teachers who can pass the Praxis exam, or nurses who can pass the state mandated nursing exam. If these students can't pass these imperative tests, we as educators have failed them," said Dr. Thomas Meredith.

Georgia ranks 47 out of 50 states in the number of students who finish high school and go onto college. Meredith says educators must inspire students to go to college, and he praised GSW for retaining more and more students each year.
