Richard Woods, as heard on WABE's “A Closer Look.”

Georgia got a new schools superintendent this year. Richard Woods was elected in November 2014 after former schools chief John Barge stepped down to run — unsuccessfully — for governor.

Woods took office in January.

Recently, WABE talked with him about a range of topics from testing to summer learning.

The conversation begins with Woods describing the duties of the state’s new fine arts director, Jessica Booth.
