Georgia Senator Elena Parent Makes Dual Enrollment Programs Affordable

Idea Category: Education, Equity & Opportunity

Georgia Senator Elena Parent is working with her colleagues across the aisle to identify cost-efficient ways to grow the state’s dual enrollment programs, which enrolled nearly 49,000 Georgia high school students last school year. She hopes to enhance the impact of her most recent legislative achievement, SB 86, which grants students greater flexibility in utilizing grant funds and gathers crucial data on the transition of students into the workforce. “That way we can make decisions that are based on the use of the dollars we can use to further the program,” Parent added.
