Georgia PTA State School Superintendent Candidate Forum -Watch Now!
by Tyler Barr on 7/21/2014

Georgia PTA hosted the State School Superintendent Candidate Forum during its 100th Annual Convention and Leadership Training Conference on July 11th, 2014 at the Georgia International Convention Center.

We were very excited to have all four candidates running for State School Superintendent participating in this event. The candidates were given the opportunity to address their qualifications, beliefs, values, and positions on policy issues vital to Georgia‚Äôs education. The discussion included topics on education funding, quality, equity, assessments, common core, and family engagement. 

The candidate forum was moderated by Tyler Barr, Legislative Policy Specialist and Dr. Detrius Jones, Education Chair of Georgia PTA. In addition, there was PTA leadership in attendance by 10 of Georgia PTA districts. If you were unable to attend, you may view a recording of the State School Superintendent Candidate Forum, at

Also, Georgia PTA would like to remind you that all four candidates are running in the primary run-off elections and we urge you to vote on tomorrow, July 22, 2014 for your State School Superintendent candidate of choice!
