ATLANTA — Georgia's incoming education chief Richard Woods wants his administration to focus on personalizing education for students, including a review of how often and when students are tested. Woods laid out those priorities and goals for better math and reading performance on Friday at the Georgia Schools Boards Association annual conference.
Woods, whose term as state superintendent begins Jan. 12, gave few specifics during his brief speech and reiterated many of his campaign proposals. Woods promised educators he will lead a department that is open to their ideas and maintain local officials' control over decisions that affect their students.
Woods also said he will cooperate with other elected officials, including state lawmakers and Gov. Nathan Deal who has said a review of school funding will be a priority in his second term.
