Since the start of this campaign, I have had the opportunity to travel thousands of miles across this great state and speak with thousands of Georgians about education.
They share my passion for providing the best possible education for every child.
With my election, Georgians have sent a clear message that they desire a diagnostic approach to standardized testing, a fair tool for evaluating our teachers, and the very best standards for our students.
I have been very clear on my positions and ideas for moving education forward in our state. Tonight, Georgians were clear that they fully support my child-focused and classroom-centered vision.
There is no doubt that we face many challenges, but I pledge to run the GaDOE in the same fashion as I have run this campaign -- listen to education stakeholders, provide solutions, and move us forward for the betterment of our children's future and the teaching profession.
Let's get to work,
