The Daily Tribune News – Board member vying to be state school superintendent

Matt Shultz announced his candidacy for state school superintendent at the Bartow County Republican Party monthly meeting on Saturday morning.

The thrust of his campaign is focused on opening the way for parents to have a greater level of choice when determining where their child will be educated. “We have to give students the best opportunity to be successful. To move forward we have to be great at everything. We have to have amazing traditional schools, we need charter schools that you can open in a community and be held accountable. Some students will thrive in home school and some will do best online,” Shultz said. “By differentiating education, parents are pulled back into the process and it is tailored to meet areas of giftedness in students.”

Shultz is running for the office that will be vacated by John Barge as he challenges Gov. Nathan Deal in the 2014 Republican primary. Due to the focus of Barge’s campaign on education, it will be a key factor in the months ahead. Shultz said he realizes this is a crucial time for the educational system of Georgia.
