JOHNS CREEK, Ga. -- Gov. Nathan Deal has appointed Rep. Mike Dudgeon (R-Johns Creek) to the new Education Reform Commission.
The commission will study Georgia's education system and recommend improvements. Deal announced the group's creation during his recent State of the State address.
"My primary focus throughout my eight years as an elected public official has been to help public education in Georgia," Dudgeon said. "I believe my background as a former school board member, an entrepreneur, and my openness to new models of funding and educational delivery will help the commission succeed in its mission to implement education reforms where it's needed in our great state."
The commission is chaired by former University of Georgia president Chuck Knapp. It will deliver its suggestions to the governor no later than Aug. 1.
