Georgia, like the nation, is faced with a challenge of changing the way education is delivered so that all children graduate from high school with the skills and knowledge needed to be successful in post secondary education and the world of work in a 21st century. Georgia’s schools need educators who know how to create learning cultures that foster the acquisition of knowledge and the communication and innovative problem solving abilities students will use throughout their lives.
The University System of Georgia understands the critical role of partnerships in developing well-educated students. The focus of the USG strategic plan, to “develop more intentional partnerships with K-12 education and the Technical College system”, places a high priority on partnerships. As part of the Alliance of Education Agency Heads, the USG works collaboratively to ensure all students have the educational opportunities they deserve and need.
