The principal of a Georgia middle school is proposing to develop four academies within the school to help better engage students in learning and develop their leadership skills. Preliminary plans include having students take the typical core courses along with having time dedicated to their chosen academy, such as sports and fitness or creative arts. "I really think if you want to improve academics, you find out what's interesting to kids and they'll work harder," principal Eric Jeffcoat said.
