As your Council President, caring for my children and for yours has always been a priority. I have created a successful college preparation admission exam program that serves more than 8,000 middle and high school students each year.  Through my leadership, the city has restored its strained relationship with the Atlanta Public School and paid outstanding moneys owed to the school system under the terms of the Beltline Agreement.

Although the City of Atlanta does not actually control the Atlanta Public Schools, there is no reason why a strong partnership with the school system cannot be formed to ensure that our youth have the 21st century skills and resources to thrive in tomorrow’s economy.
