ATLANTA (AP) -- State lawmakers made few major changes to education policy during this year's legislative session.

A bill that would let parents and teachers try to convert failing public schools into charter schools stalled, as did an attempt to change state curriculum standards.

Lawmakers did lower grade-point average requirements so that more students would qualify for the popular HOPE grant for technical colleges.

Perhaps the biggest change to state education policy was the standardization of teacher evaluations based, in part, on student performance.

The bill is under review by the governor.
