Go back to move up

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Georgia officials are teaming up with the state's four-year university and technical college systems to get adults back in School. 

The "Go Back Move Ahead" Campaign kicked off this week to get Georgians who have completed some college to return and finish their degree. It's part of Governor Deal's "Complete College Georgia" initiative that launched in 2011.

 The campaign is expected to make it easier for returning students through scheduling and course selection. 

 "People are always learning and we want to make sure that we embrace that when they come back to schools," said Anthony Parker of Albany Tech. "We have to change, so that we'll be viable and I think that's what the Governor is encouraging us to do."

 Education officials say 22% of the state's population started college but never finished.
