Tech Men's Basketball Signs Two

ATLANTA -- Two days before his first regular-season game as Georgia Tech's head basketball coach, Brian Gregory got the Yellow Jackets' recruiting off on the right track by signing a pair of all-state Georgia high school prospects to national letters-of-intent.

Chris Bolden, a 6-3 guard from North Gwinnett High School in Suwanee, Ga., and 6-6 forward Marcus Hunt of North Clayton High School in College Park, Ga., cemented their commitments to join Georgia Tech's basketball program in the fall of 2012.

"For our great program to move forward, we must recruit high-quality players who are high-character people," said Gregory. "This institution, our tradition-rich program, and our loyal supporters and fans deserve the very best. Today, I feel we took a big step in that direction."

State board to decide fate of Atlanta school board

State board to decide fate of Atlanta school board

ATLANTA (AP) - The state Board of Education has voted to keep members of the Atlanta school board in place after the district was taken off probation with a national agency.

Atlanta had been on probation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools since January. The district was taken off that status last week.

A state law that took effect July 1 allows the governor to remove members of local school boards if their districts are in danger of losing accreditation. The law calls for the state board to hold a hearing and make recommendations to the governor.

New program aims to raise Ga. college graduation rates

New program aims to raise Ga. college graduation rates

ATLANTA -- The state Board of Regents has approved a plan to increase the number of students who finish college.

The board approved the "Complete College Georgia" initiative during a meeting Wednesday to address statistics showing that 42 percent of adults in the state have some kind of education past high school.

The plan calls for more cooperation between the University System of Georgia and the Technical College System of Georgia. It also will focus on helping Georgia's public schools produce more college-ready graduates.

The plan must also be approved by the Technical College System of Georgia before it is presented to the governor's office. It is part of a $1 million grant Georgia received in August from the Complete College America Foundation.
