Georgia Association of Educators hopes General Assembly will help fund schools
MACON, Ga. -- The Georgia Association of Educators is speaking out about what they want to see happen in the Georgia General Assembly coming up at the start of 2017.
On Wednesday, Georgia Association of Educators President Dr. Sid Chapman said that the biggest issue they want to focus on is to get all public schools fully funded. He said the Quality Basic Education Act, or QBE, isn't doing that right now.
"We're still on the QBE formula," he said. "They keep talking about changing the formula. It's never been fully funded and we certainly want more money to go back into public schools."
The Georgia General Assembly will meet from January until late March 2018.
