Statement from Superintendent Woods on the renewal of Georgia’s ESEA Flexibility Waiver

“I am pleased that Georgia was granted continued flexibility from the overly prescriptive and one-size-fits-all AYP system,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “However, I am still hopeful that Congress will reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act so Georgia and other states have more flexibility and autonomy over accountability measures for schools. States know what works to improve education better than the federal government." Read the rest of this statement, and learn more about Georgia’s ESEA waiver renewal, at the link above.
