America’s Choice/Georgia’s Choice

December 10, 2001

In the spring of 2001, Georgia’s State Board of Education approved a contract to implement a major school reform model in some of the state’s most challenging elementary and middle schools. Entitled America’s Choice/Georgia’s Choice, that model has been adopted in approximately 160 schools scattered across the state for the 2001-2002 school year. Current plans call for the state to invest in excess of 60 million dollars over the next three years in an effort to radically improve student achievement.
