The steering committee charged with coming up with a charter application for the new Lamar County College and Career Academy approved the key document which will be presented to the school board for approval July 20.
This is fantastic. Not all students are college material and for those who do get a college degree their effort does not assure future employment. College graduates find that local employment with pay worthy of their educational investment doesn’t exist. They must venture into the metro area for viable employment. Blue color technical skills are a completely different story. It’s a great way to make a living and work closer to home. This is a major step toward attracting new industry to our neck of the woods. Lamar County is finally on the right path to better the quality of life of its citizens. Good job folks!
It may be interesting to know that Georgia is below the national average of what it financially invest in its citizens education. This is a good start toward correcting this disparity.
If these schools are legally mandated to abide by NCLB laws, it will be the same as public schools.

glad to see that the public school system has admitted that the private sector can do a better job than the public. why dont we save the tax payers millions and send all the kids to private schools. it would be cheaper than what we spend on public education per child. oh yea cant do that because all the teacher unions and all the fat cats that take up central office jobs would be in an uproar.yes to answer your next question, i know i didnt cpitalize or use correct punctuation. guess' i was too busy reading "johnnys got 2 daddys" or studying about peer mediation or alternate lifestyles or it takes a whole village to raise a child, or the history of islam to waste time on engish class or praying .
