President’s Blog: Education, Democracy & the Public Square

Yesterday, the State of Georgia performed an important symbolic and executive function inaugurating Mr. Brian Kemp, former Secretary of State, as the new Governor of the State. Amidst this week’s inaugural fanfare and the beginning of the 153rd Georgia General Assembly, Governor Kemp’s inauguration reminds us, and encapsulates, our democratic lifestyle in the state, the US and the Western World. It is a great thing our leaders are chosen, in Lincoln’s eloquent words, by the people, of the people, for the people.
