Rural education is gaining special attention, in the form of a new office in the state department of education in Georgia. It will focus on needs of rural schools. The office of Rural Education and Innovation will be led by a veteran education leader Bronwyn Ragan-Martin.
Martin recently worked as the Superintendent of the Early County School System and President of the Georgia School Superintendents Association. He will take over the responsibility of Rural Education and Innovation, as Deputy Superintendent starting from October.
Governor Brian Kemp said, “It is a top priority of my administration to strengthen and bring greater opportunities and economic prosperity to rural Georgia.”
