    teachers and school leaders clear ideas of what
    they need to get students to learn
  • Mandatory state graduation tests (GHSGT) in
    English/language arts, mathematics, science,
    social studies and writing that send the message
    to all students that they need to master
    challenging content, regardless of their
    ethnicity or socioeconomic backgrounds and
  • An accountability system (Georgia Public
    Education Report Card) that measures school
    performance and gives schools a way to measure
    themselves.
