Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta.
Georgia's Quality Core Curriculum (QCC) originated in 1984 with a recommendation for review every 5 years. In 1996, teachers, administrators, parents, and business leaders throughout Georgia reviewed and analyzed the existing QCC in an effort to update the curriculum, reflect technological advances, and create a more effective base for teaching. This 1999 report on Georgia's education for students in grades 6-8 presents core curriculum requirements in the areas of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, health and physical education, fine arts (dance, music, theater, and visual arts), technology/career education; and agriculture education. For each curriculum area, the report presents at introduction and a description of the revision process and revisions made for that specific area. (SM)
