Organization of School Systems in Georgia. A Survey Report.
George Peabody Coll. for Teachers, Nashville, TN. Div. of Surveys and Field Services.
In compliance with a Georgia legislative directive to search for efficient and economical methods of providing quality education for children in Georgia, a study of the organization of existing school systems was conducted. The purposes of the study were to develop criteria (1) for the evaluation of elementary and secondary schools and (2) for reorganization of existing attendance areas, and to compile data on which the proposed suggestions were based. Findings concerning administrative organization, range of available services, school size and cost relationships, current standards and practices, and financial needs indicate that the Georgia county is no longer a suitable basis for planning local school system government. Suggested evaluation criteria, recommendations, advisory suggestions, and conclusions are included in the document. (DK)
