Postsecondary technical education in the State of Georgia has a rich history from its beginnings in the early twentieth century to its transformation into a system of technical colleges in the early twenty-first century. The history of Georgia’s technical colleges is a case study in the development of vocational training and education over the past one hundred and fifty years. Georgians have established new educational programs and new schools but also used their political power to engender national support from the Federal government. This historical study follows the history of postsecondary technical education in Georgia from the early District Agricultural and Mechanical Schools to the modern Technical Colleges. Conclusions on what can be learned from this history are presented.
