1. SOUNDBITE (English) Gov. Brian Kemp, (R) Georgia:

2. SOUNDBITE (English) Gov. Brian Kemp, (R) Georgia:
"This legislative package will also lean on prior experience to fill classroom positions as well equipped professionals by allowing our retired teachers to come back to the classroom full time to teach in high needs areas. These hard working men and women have a wealth of experience and knowledge with decades spent raising up the next generation of leaders. This initiative will help our retirees the retirement system and education as a whole."
