Public education is constantly in the news. The fact is that most citizens really don't understand the nuances of the field.

The first portion of the course will address some history of education in Georgia, information about education funding, policies and a description of opportunities for our future. The second part of the course is designed to provide candidates who are seeking the office of School Board Member the fundamental information required. Some of the topics discussed will include: Legal Issues, Delineating the Roles and Responsibilities of the School Board Members and the Superintendent, Required Training, Ethics, and Conflicts of Interest.

We hope that you will gain a greater understanding and appreciation for our educators and that you will be motivated to encourage others to complete this course.
