Georgia’s Pre-K/HOPE:  This week the Governor’s HOPE bill (HB 326, Rep. Doug Collins, 27th Dist.), which lays out parameters for post-secondary education funding, passed the House and is now being taken up in the Senate Higher Education committee. There is no GA Pre-K language in that bill.  The jury is still out on the final plan for Pre-K this year, but expectations are that the $54 Million cut for FY 2012 will remain, whatever form the programmitic changes take.
