Technology Upgrades in the Works for Bibb Schools
Bibb County public schools are getting technology upgrades that should cure some problems and prepare schools for the future. The system has already moved some bottlenecks and is working to bring faster networking, wireless Internet access, reliable email and other fixes to the school system’s technologies, said Mike Hall, the system’s executive director of technology.


Good news on the education front but persistent poverty threatens

The Bibb County school system and other districts are rightfully proud of the recent graduation statistics released by the state Department of Education. All districts are following the four-year cohort now, and the statewide graduation rate has increased from 69.7 percent in 2012 to 71.5 percent in 2013. Locally, Bibb went from 54.6 percent in 2012 to a 61.1 percent graduation rate in 2013.

Southwest High School, the local poster child of low graduation rates in 2012 at 39 percent, climbed to 45.6 percent.

By way of comparison, in 2012, Jones County had a graduation rate of 71.3 percent. In 2013, they took that number to 76.6 percent. Twiggs County went from a 48 percent grad rate to 75.3 percent. The only system in the area to give up ground was Peach County, it dropped from 66.2 percent to 63.3 percent.

But there is a shadow that looms over most of Middle Georgia that has a great impact on every aspect of education: poverty. The Georgia Budget and Policy Institute released a report Tuesday, “Recovery or Bust: Georgia’s Poor Left Behind” ( The report should scare everyone from the General Assembly that supplies most of the funds for education to the janitors in every school system.
