Dear Georgia education stakeholders,
I continue to hear questions and concerns about our K-12
standards from parents, educators, and students. Many are concerned about
whether the standards are age- and developmentally appropriate, and whether
they present a realistic amount of content for teachers to deliver in one year.
Along with Governor Brian Kemp, I am committed to
ensuring the best possible standards in our classrooms. Today, the Georgia
Department of Education is launching a survey to seek feedback on the Georgia
Standards of Excellence for Mathematics and English Language Arts. Click here
to complete the mathematics
survey and here to complete the ELA survey.
Together with the Governor’s Office, our goal is to lead an
open, collaborative process with true feedback offered by all stakeholders –
including classroom teachers and other educational leaders, parents, students,
business and industry, and higher education. We ask that you answer the survey
questions based on your experience with the K-12 Georgia Standards of
Excellence for Mathematics and ELA.
My deepest thanks for your support of Georgia’s public
schools and your honest feedback.
State School Superintendent
