February 2014, the Georgia Vision for Public Education Project announced the start of its new campaign, Spark! – Igniting Education in Georgia. The Georgia Vision Project encourages parents to take an active role in their children’s education in partnership with Georgia’s teachers and administrators. A key part of this is the Spark campaign, which aims to ignite a spark in Georgia public school students by highlighting positive stories and how students can capitalize on them as the base for a successful future. Spark is all about passion; a passion for learning, a passion for teaching. Georgia’s public schools are competitive and prepare students for future achievement at the university level and beyond,” said Dr. Joseph C. Barrow, superintendent, Fayette County Schools.
The Spark! campaign will highlight academic success stories through public service announcements, billboards and media coverage. Spark! aims to stir a students’ devotion for learning, to inspire enthusiasm in teachers and to elicit a commitment from parents, business leaders and community members who may not know the best ways to stay active in a child’s education. Spark! facilitates these partnerships with the goal of showcasing the strengths of the Georgia public school systems.
Please support the Spark! Campaign and ignite a passion for teaching and learning.
