ATLANTA - April 11, 2014 - PRLog -- Dr. Michael Owens, candidate for U.S Representative in Georgia’s 13th Congressional District was joined by 2011 Milken Educator Award Recipient Shekema Silveri, Clayton County School Board Member Jessie Goree, Assistant Principal and Union City resident Dr. Stephanie Golden, and 30 year retired educator and Henry County School Board Candidate Annette Edwards to discuss upgrading the education systems in the thirteenth district. “While I may not be an expert in education, I recognize the power of bringing those individuals from across the district to one table to discuss the strategies for improvement and taking action in a way that would most benefit the children,” Said Owens to a packed room of educators, parents, and concerned citizens.

In his address, Owens highlighted the integration of technology into the classroom and the strengthening of foreign language studies, “We live in an era that is continuing to be defined by technology and globalization and we must ensure that our students are competitive both in a progressing work force as well as in the global economy.” Panelist Shekema Silveri, who has been featured on CNN’s Perry’s Principles for her use of technology in her Clayton County classrooms, added that “I can appreciate Dr. Owens’ vision for being so in touch with the challenges faced by students in this district.”

As an arm of his proposed District 13 Community Council, Michael Owens plans to create an education committee that will be composed educators, administrators, parents, students, and experts that will meet frequently to address the needs of schools in the district and what can be done from a federal level to ensure school systems have the necessary resources for advancement.
