2017 Top Ten Issues to Watch Report; Partnership ‘On the Air’ With GNN This Weekend

Dear Board and Council Members:

Following is the message we will soon be sending to our mailing list.  You will be getting your copy of the Top Ten Issues to Watch report in the mail in the next few days. This is another product we are proud of.  Thank you for your continuing service to the Georgia Partnership.

The 13th Edition of the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education’s Top Ten Issues to Watch report was officially released Friday morning at the organization’s annual Media Symposium for education reporters and editors.

The latest report looks at several recurring topics such as funding and early learning but introduces some new topics such as student mental health and school and district leadership.  Georgia Partnership policy and research director, Dr. Dana Rickman, and I were interviewed about the latest publication this week for the Georgia News Network’s public affairs program Georgia Focus.  It will air this weekend across the state on 140+ stations.  Check here for stations and times.  You can find a link to the interview on our web site.

The Top Ten is a “go-to” resource for public education across our state.  All members of the legislature receive a copy at the start of the session, many of our college and university teacher preparation programs use it in their classes, and it can be found at education-related conferences as well as in the hands of individual education stakeholders from parents to state-level advocates throughout the year. Four thousand copies are printed and distributed annually.

The Georgia Partnership will provide one free copy upon request and will only ask for postage reimbursement for larger quantities.  You can download it here.

As always, we are interested in your feedback.  Drop us a line and let us know what you think of our latest edition.

As we start a new year, we send best wishes from the entire Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education team and thank you for your continuing support.
