I:5c;; 2-A HOGANSVILLE HOME NEWS - THURSDAY, AUG. 14, 2003 Schools... Continued From Page 1A schools on the failing list. Most of those Muscogee County Schools were located in the economically stressed areas. Three of Coweta County's Title 1 schools were on the blacklist as was Crawford County Middle school. Only one ttarris County School, Carver Middle School, was listed as needing improvement; while two of three Pike County Schools were also ranked low. Talbot County has only one school, Central of Talbotton Elementary/High School. and it is ranked as needing improve- ment. Kathy Cox, State Superintendent of Schools speaking at several Title 1 schools in Georgia said it was the goal of the State Department of Education that every sys- tem and every school in (;eorgia attain these high goals. Many parents considered the option of transferring students to a school that meets all qualifications, but some found their neighbors were in a similar situation and some school districts had only one type school, leaving no school to transfer. More parents must resort to tutoring and closer supervision of their child's study habits to give the students an opportunity to score higher on the CRCT test.
