Investing in our children by fully funding our schools and
working to provide more support for teachers and programs, better broadband access for all communities, and reliable transportation for those who lack access.
No child's chance at a better future should be determined by the zip code they are born into. For far too long, Georgia Republicans have failed to update our education policies to meet the demands of a changing world. This has set our children up for failure. Georgia House Democrats will fight for the right of every child in Georgia to have access to the resources they need by fully funding their education.
This legislative session, Georgia House Democrats are proposing changes to the way our state distributes valuable resources across our public schools, known as the Quality Basic Education (QBE) formula. Under the current QBE formula, Georgia prioritizes large, urban public schools with high enrollment, while our students in rural areas suffer from a lack of investment in their future. Georgia House Democrats will increase funding for all of our neighborhood schools. Georgia House Democrats will also ensure that every student, regardless of zip code, has access to broadband internet, transportation, and the educational resources they need to dream big for tomorrow. Georgia House Democrats will also fight to support our children who have grown up in the foster care system and those who have struggled with homelessness.
