Nancy Jester for State School Superintendent and the possible Future of Education in Georgia

Please join Dunwoody resident Nancy Jester for her campaign kick-off! Monday, November 11th, 3:30 p.m. Brook Run Park playground in Dunwoody.

The State of Georgia spends around $20 Billion per year, with more than half of that money spent on education. If you do the math, no pun intended, reason dictates that the State Superintendent has the responsibility to spend more than $10 Billion a year. Not exactly the job for a “Edu-crat.”

Former DeKalb School Board Member Nancy Jester will make her candidacy for Georgia State School Superintendent official tomorrow afternoon in Dunwoody.

Greg Williams of Greg’s List had the opportunity to catch up with Nancy at the Dekalb County GOP Headquarters opening on Sunday, November 10 for a unscheduled Q & A. He had the chance to ask Nancy a few pertinent questions about her candidacy so check out Greg's site.

Finally the other big news in education is the DeKalb school board is scheduled to vote Monday on the petition to put Druid Hills High School and six feeder schools under the management of a nonprofit organization. The cluster would operate under its own administrators and board of directors.

If approved by the board Monday and the state board later, the Druid Hills charter cluster will be the first in Georgia.
