ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Elected leaders spread the word about two new laws they say will help Georgians earn college degrees.
Dougherty County Commissioner John Hayes invited School Superintendent David Mosely and State Representative Darrel Ealum to his quarterly listening session.
They promoted one law that makes it easier for high school students to dual enroll in college and another that allows you to go to college if you complete two years of high school and pass the compass test.
"Because it does allow a smart child, energetic child, one who has some career options and things in mind to move on as oppose to having to stay for four years," said Dr. David Mosely, Dougherty County School Superintendent.
"It's going to be a game changer as far as the way the parents and children can think about advancing their education," said Representative Darrel Ealum.
Mosely says nearly 300 students in the county are in the Move on When Ready Dual Enrollment Program.
