EDUCATION

Everyone deserves a fair chance to succeed. Our nation’s success is built on the founding principles of unlimited opportunity, quality education, commitment to hard work, and the freedom to pursue our dreams. Nate Green fights each and every day to ensure that the community is advancing towards meeting these founding principles. Read on to learn about the issues at hand, and what is being done to combat them.

 

NATE'S VISION

As your State Representative, I will prioritize access to childcare and education for all children – no matter who they are or where they live. I believe that a strong education is the foundation to success, health, wealth, and healthy relationships.

Children in Georgia and District 55 currently lag behind on a variety of metrics, including access to services and graduation rates. Our children deserve support from cradle to career, not a pipeline to prison. This begins with a high-quality education that gives them opportunities to reach their dreams. Georgia has the resources to expand access to childcare and pre-k, fully fund education and expand HOPE grants, but those currently in power refuse to do the right thing. I stand with the thoughts of those who believe in using tax dollars responsibly to create a sustainably enhanced education system for our children.

 

I am a product of a public school system and I believe we have a responsibility to:

  • Update and Fully Fund Georgia’s Quality Basic Education Formula 

  • Establish Permanent Teacher Pay Increases

  • Establish the Georgia Educator Pipeline Project

  • End Public School Dollar Diversion Programs

  • Increase the presence of Mental Health Professionals

  • Defend Complete and Honest Education

  • Eliminate Harmful Waivers

  • Support Our Children

  • Increase Funding and Supports for Disadvantaged and Marginalized Students
