GCPS does many great things for students. Opportunities abound in athletics, Advanced Placement programs, and even arts and music. However, truly excellent organizations continuously strive to improve. For example, improvements can be made in class sizes (reducing them), reducing the number of standardized tests, and creating more equitable discipline policies for all students. Career and vocational education must be improved to meet the needs of a changing economy – one that demands more and more technically trained workers. Jobs are growing much faster in these areas. Lab technicians, welders, electricians, and dental hygienists are just a few examples.
