Economic development starts in Georgia’s classrooms

Dear Colleague:

The Atlanta Business Chronicle recently published a commentary we here at the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education would like to commend to you.  The piece, “Economic development starts in Georgia’s classrooms,” was written by Georgia Power’s VP of community and economic development, Anne Hydrick Kaiser, and is a perfect fit for our Economics of Education message we have been delivering across Georgia since 2004:  The quality of education is inextricably linked to economic outcomes.

The headline tells the story.  Ms. Kaiser not only emphasizes the role of business in ensuring a first class public education system and ultimately a first class workforce, but also praises the Georgia Partnership “which has worked for 25 years to improve education and shape public policy.”

We are grateful to the Atlanta Business Chronicle for granting us permission to share this article with you.

The Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education team wishes you and yours the happiest of Thanksgivings.  We appreciate your continuing interest in and support of our work.
