Sonny Perdue on Education

Republican GA Governor

 


Tie teacher pay to student achievement

Two years ago, our IE squared legislation began freeing systems from state mandates, bringing innovative thinking into their schools, while committing contractually to measurable student improvement. This radical move forward in education policy is already producing results.

Yesterday morning, I outlined a proposal that would tie teacher pay to student achievement. Some will defend the status quo, but it's hard for me to believe that tying pay to performance is anything other than commonsense.

Streamline school bureaucracy; empower parents

The current administration has used a “one size fits all” strategy & added extra layers of bureaucracy to government. These extra burdens ignore the varying needs of our children, stifle teacher creativity, and endanger the true education of our children Perdue will empower local schools, teachers, and parents to make decisions about their children’s education. Our government must accept that parents, teachers, and communities know the needs of our children better than a bureaucracy in Atlanta.
