This Week in GeorgiaGov: Children
Children model their parents, and that's largely the reason education study after study shows that parents are among the most effective teachers. Throughout Parent Engagement Month, the Georgia Department of Education encourages parents to get involved - to read with children, to take students to museums, to talk about history, science and the arts.
Starting this year, students will see more school nurses in their front office clinics. Under new legislation, public schools must now supply at least one nurse for every 750 elementary school students and one for every 1,500 middle and high school students.
