ATLANTA  - The Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education and the Georgia School Boards Association will hold a half-day session for area school board and state legislative candidates from 12:30-4:45 p.m. June 26 at Savannah Technical College. The Education Policy Forum is designed to provide future education decision makers with non-partisan, research-based information on which to develop positions.
The Forum, which began in the 2002 election year and was repeated in 2004 and 2006, features experts who address areas that are consistently local and statewide items of interest. Topics include choices in education, early learning, education finance, governance and policymaking, school leadership, standards, assessments and accountability, student achievement and teacher workforce. The information is compiled in a primer that covers each topic at length. All participants receive one of the resource books.
