Adult education opportunities in Georgia eyed by state lawmakers | News

Georgia lawmakers are looking at ways to boost the number of people who earn high school and college degrees amid a changing labor market that is tending toward more automated technical jobs.

More than 1 million Georgians could become “unemployable” in the coming years due to a shift toward technology-driven jobs that people with lower levels of education cannot fill, according to Stephen Pruitt, president of the nonprofit Southern Regional Education Board.

Without access to adult education, those less-educated Georgians could be left in the lurch by 2030, particularly as the COVID-19 pandemic has sped up automated and online-focused jobs, Pruitt told a Georgia Senate study committee Thursday.

“The reality is we’re going to have plenty of jobs,” Pruitt said. “The question is whether we’re going to have people to take those jobs.”

The Senate Educating Adult Students Study Committee met for the first and perhaps only time Thursday to

Online learning after outbreaks comes with challenges, opportunities for two local schools

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — COVID-19 presents major challenges for many Mid-South schools and teachers. Some schools are trying to accommodate students learning virtually while they struggle to keep the doors open for those wanting in-person classes.

There’s little movement on the campus of Christian Brothers High School, where all the boys are learning from home until Oct. 3. In-person classes shut down after six reported COVID cases led to a cluster of quarantines. 

The switch to all virtual was one the private school adapted to easier than most schools.
