ATLANTA (AP) Georgia Department of Education officials say the state has been chosen to launch a pilot educator training program.

In a release Wednesday, officials said Georgia has been chosen as one of seven states to launch the Network for Transforming Educator Preparation, a two-year program focused on helping new teachers begin preparing children for college and the workforce.

The program is focused on strengthening teacher licensing standards, improving teacher training and streamlining data collection processes regarding Georgia's education workforce.

Officials say the program will be launched with the help of several state agencies. Among them are the University System of Georgia and the Professional Standards Commission which licenses teachers in Georgia.

State School Superintendent John Barge says his department is honored to be chosen to help pilot the program.
