Monday's conversation: Education
The two candidates for governor garnered attention last week for their stances on the HOPE Scholarship, but there’s been less attention to their basic views on what role the state ought to play in education. I take up the matter today. Today’s guest columnist addresses institutions of higher education and whether they’re responding to the changing ways students learn and the increased frustration with rising college costs. And readers sound off about DeKalb County and its response to the now-abandoned effort to create a charter cluster in the Druid Hills area.
