Gwinnett County Schools Hiring Highest Number of UGA Teaching Grads

Recently, UGA's College of Education released a survey to 2014 graduates with a teacher-preparation degree, and found out that 62% of respondents, or 325 graduates, were hired by a Georgia city or county school district. Among these districts, Gwinnett County Public Schools hired 75 first-year teachers from UGA. Fulton and Clarke County didn't disappoint, hiring 34 each. 

In 2013, only 51% of new teachers took jobs in Georgia schools. This steep 11% increase is chalked up to economic improvements. Says Jack Parish, the College of Education's associate dean for outreach and engagement, "School districts recognize the preparedness of our graduates and actively recruit them to our school districts."
