INCREASED EDUCATION FUNDING & REFORM

Provided record funding for education and a teacher pay raise while enacting reforms to increase education attainment levels, including:

Creating an A-F rating system so all parents can understand school performance and eliminating a confusing seven-tier system.

Empowering parents to make decisions that are best for their kids’ education, including allowing public charter schools in failing districts.

Enacting a 3rd grade reading gate to ensure that students who can’t read aren’t passed on and providing $30 million in new funding for reading coaches who help children learn and help teachers sharpen skills.

Improved pre-school education by creating a pre-kindergarten collaborative program with public-private community partnerships.

Passed a teacher pay raise bill making our state one of the top paying states for beginning teachers in the Southeast.
