ATLANTA -- Fifty high school students from across Georgia have been selected to serve on the 2012-13 Student Advisory Council.
State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge announced the members of his council Friday.
"The Student Advisory Council allows me to hear directly from students in our schools and discuss major initiatives with them," Barge said in a statement. "The council also gives students the opportunity to share with me their ideas and concerns, which we can use to shape future state policies."
