The construction of a $1 billion Georgia school is a far cry from the promised, $1 trillion in economic development that the state is touting.
While many believe the plan will bring tens of thousands of jobs and billions in new tax revenue, the new plan leaves out the most important element, a promise to provide a better education for our students.
In recent years, Georgia has had some of the highest-quality and most affordable education systems in the country.
But it has been lacking a plan to build on those success stories, particularly for low-income students and families.
Now, with the plan under fire, the state legislature is considering a package of education and tax incentives that will provide a critical lifeline to help these families and their children graduate from high school and stay in the state for the long haul.
The plan would provide incentives to provide scholarships and help fund construction of more than a dozen new public schools, including two at the state’s largest urban high schools.
It also would provide a one-time $200 million grant to help build four new charter schools, with construction starting in the next few years.
But the biggest component of the plan is the $1,000 scholarship program that will be available for low income families with children who are eligible.
This would be especially important for low and moderate-income families.
While there is no guarantee the scholarship will be used to pay for construction, many believe that it could help.
The scholarship would be a welcome lifeline for families that have been struggling financially, and many Georgia families would be eligible for the grant.
But for families who are struggling to make ends meet, it would likely be less generous than the scholarship offered to low- and moderate income families already eligible.
Georgia has struggled with rising enrollment and funding issues in recent years.
In the past two years, enrollment has plummeted to a historic low of about 50,000 students and the number of students attending the state-operated high schools has dropped to a record low of 8,200.
In 2016, the school year started at the worst point in more than 60 years.
Last year, enrollment declined by nearly 6,000 and the state school system was in the red.
And the enrollment rate of the state schools fell to its lowest level since before the Great Recession.
This is a big problem.
In Georgia, about 60 percent of the population lives in poverty.
And with Georgia having one of the lowest enrollment rates of any state in the nation, a number of factors have contributed to the decline in enrollment.
For one, the Georgia public schools have been underfunded for years.
According to the Georgia Department of Education, they have $939 million in unfunded pension liabilities, including $1 million in the pension fund for current teachers.
And they also have an $8.9 million budget shortfall due to a reduction in state funding that began in 2014.
The state is already underfunded by more than $1 B in federal funding for elementary and secondary education and the $2 billion that was committed to Georgia in the 2015-2021 state budget has not yet been implemented.
There is also an oversupply of teacher vacancies in the classroom.
The number of teacher positions in Georgia has been falling for several years now, and the job market has been tightening.
While Georgia’s high school graduation rate is high, it has only risen from 42 percent in 2012 to 55 percent in 2016, a rate that is still far below the national average of 75 percent.
With an unemployment rate of 5.4 percent, this is a huge problem for families.
There are many factors that are contributing to the high graduation rate, including the high cost of tuition, the low number of scholarships available, the high unemployment rate, and an overreliance on charter schools.
And of course, there are many other factors that contribute to the higher student achievement and the quality of education.
This year, the State of Georgia will begin the process of eliminating some of these programs and funding a new funding model for education that will help us address the needs of our most vulnerable students.
There will be additional incentives for Georgia’s low-performing students and low-skilled teachers.
This will help ensure that we can provide our most needy students with the education that they need and to ensure that the most vulnerable children have access to the best possible education.
The Georgia state legislature has begun the process to create a $50 million scholarship program to help families with a child who has not graduated from high-performing schools and is currently in the public school system.
This scholarship will also be available to low income and moderate low income students in Georgia.
The bill will also provide incentives for school districts to establish charters.
Many of these new charters will be built in urban areas that have seen significant economic development and a significant increase in enrollment, particularly in urban districts.
And this will create the opportunity for our most disadvantaged students to continue to have access, whether it’s to a private school,
