Education Issues in the 2018 Campaign for Governor, State School Superintendent

As a non-partisan organization, the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education does not endorse candidates.  We are providing this page now to track the declared 2018 gubernatorial and state superintendent candidates’ positions/statements during the campaign. We will post articles and statements as they relate to education matters. We encourage Georgia citizens to do their “homework” on the road to casting informed votes November 6.
