Admittedly, I do not know the details regarding the new CCRPI scoring system. Without knowing the details, there are a few very obvious conclusions one can easily see from the scores. First, the Dougherty County elementary and middle "magnet" schools and the "charter" schools all scored very high and above the state average. Robert Cross Middle and Lincoln Elementary "magnet" schools were the top two schools. These two schools have minority students making up 86% and 88% of the student bodies, respectively. This tells me that these two schools have a better education model than the other schools in Dougherty County.

Education in Albany is critical to the current and future health of our community. And, quality education is the key to our collective properity and quality of life. I hope and pray that our community will embrace proven success and change the way we educate our precious youth. The results of these scores seem to be pointing us in a more successful direction.
