Governor Nathan Deal Salutes Higher Education
In a January 7, 2011 guest article written for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Governor Nathan Deal commented on the importance of higher education.
Deal wrote, “There are promising signs springing up in Georgia’s economy…This helps tremendously – and allows us to continue to meet our education responsibilities. But it’s not enough to fill the gaping budget hole. Tough decisions remain, but I pledge that every decision will go through this prism: Will this help Georgia preserve and promote jobs today and will it prepare Georgia for the jobs of tomorrow?”
He further commented, “One way we prepare for our economic future is producing a highly skilled work force, where a college education is more important than ever.”
