Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle said restructuring education will be essential in yielding the greatest return on investment for the state of Georgia.
He compared his belief that the charter school concept should replace “the current, education bureaucracy” with some of the state’s past investments, such as Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and the Port of Savannah, and how changing the school system was the next step in making the state successful.
“Being able to see the value of the investment in our airport in the 1970’s and the Port of Savannah in the early 2000’s took visionaries who could see how those projects would give our state the greatest possible return on our investments,” Cagle told the Dunwoody Chamber of Commerce Tuesday. “Now, we need visionaries who can invest in changing our education system and make it our No. 1 priority.”
