Reading, writing, and arithmetic are still taught in schools these days. But if Gov. Nathan Deal has his way, Georgia schools could change the way they approach arithmetic.
Speaking at Georgia Tech’s Ferst Center Monday, Gov. Deal said Georgia has jobs to fill.
“We must continue to meet the workforce needs if we want to further attract businesses and to maintain jobs we currently have,” he said.
The governor said businesses need computer programmers and software developers, and they’re not finding qualified candidates in Georgia. So, he wants schools to help.
