A new education reform report card, from Students First, gives Georgia a C- for k-12 education policy. However, the national average is a D. Only two states, Florida & Louisiana, were able to score higher than a C.
Students First is the education reform group started by former Washington D.C. School Chancellor Michelle Rhee.
The organization has a simple, but bold, mission:
"Our mission is to build a national movement to defend the interests of children in public education and pursue transformative reform, so that America has the best education system in the world."
The Students First Board of Directors includes a number of household names like Connie Chung, Bill Cosby, and Jalen Rose.
