  • In the May/June 2015 issue of PAGE ONE, the publication of the Professional Association of Georgia Educators, the Feature Story entitled “How Some Georgia Schools are Realizing Healthy Jumps in Graduation Rates” has good stories and pertinent information about how some schools in Georgia have significantly improved their graduation rates.
