SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - Educational leaders gathered Tuesday morning in Worth County to discuss improvements for student education development. The Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education held an Economics of Education meeting to discuss how community members can come together to look at education.
State leaders say Worth County's education is a strong system, but there can be improvements in teaching from birth to the work force.
"It's interesting to have an opportunity with a new superintendent here and she's working closely with the Chamber, the Worth County Chamber," explained Stephen Dolinger, Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education. "For those groups, they see that they have to work together. The school system can't do this alone. The Chamber can't build the work force alone. "
The Excellence in Education summit is a program held across the state by the non-profit group. Worth County holds a high school graduation rate of 80%, which is higher than the state at 73%.
