Teasley Appointed to Serve on New State Commission on Civics Education

“As I understand it, the Georgia Commission on Civics Education was created by SB 220 to 'promote and enhance the education of students on the importance of civic involvement in a constitutional republic, the study of state and local government among the state's citizenry, the importance of civic engagement and public service, and communication and collaboration among organizations in the state that conduct civics education,’” Teasley said.

“I commend the General Assembly for including educators on the Commission as they will be the ones who make the difference, and as you might expect, I am honored that Governor Kemp's appointment gives me this opportunity to serve.”
