Milledgeville professor publishes report on why, how parents choose private school

A new study released by the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice examines what factors influence parent’s decision to send their child to a private school.

Georgia College economics professor Ben Scafidi, Ph.D., and Founder and General Counsel of the Georgia Community Foundation Inc. James P. Kelly, III, J.D., co-wrote a report that uses the results of a survey given to parents of K–12 private school scholarship recipients in Georgia.

“More Than Scores: An Analysis of Why and How Parents Choose Private Schools,” found parents focus a variety of factors, including student safety, class size, classroom discipline, religious education, high school completion, post-secondary success and a greater sense of community when choosing a private school education. According to the study, those factors are more important than the results of standardized tests administered to students attending the school.

Drunk Driving Simulator Comes to Georgia College

Students at Georgia College got a first-hand look at what it's like to drive drunk.

But they did it from the safe seat of a simulator. 

 The national "Save A Life Tour" came to the Milledgeville campus Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

Second-year sociology student Hannah Baumgarten said it was scary, adding she "thinks it's important for people to see that you shouldn't drink and drive..." 

"Save A Life" is a high impact drinking and driving awareness program. It has been to all 50 states and 7 countries. 

Tour manager Andrew Tipton says the simulator works by delaying the reaction of the breaks and steering wheel.  

It starts off with the reaction times of a sober driver then becomes more and more delayed as the levels of intoxication increase.
