The Education Policy Fellowship Program is a critical resource not only for individuals and organizations, but also the state of Georgia, as it deepens Georgia leaders’ understanding of the policy process and equips them to be change agents in their communities. Since its inception, the program has trained over 200 Fellows across eleven cohorts and is one of 17 states affiliated with the national umbrella organization, Institute for Educational Leadership.

EdQuest Georgia is a framework designed to help stakeholders understand Georgia’s system of education and to provide a concept of how the parts and pieces of the system fit together and reinforce each other.

Based in best-practice research, EdQuest highlights seven core policy areas that are common across high-performing states and countries. The baseline report examines where Georgia is strong and should continue the great work being done, as well as opportunities that need to be addressed to move the state forward.

The Partnership’s Top Ten Issues to Watch publication is an award winning annual report highlighting and providing recommendations on critical educational issues in Georgia. The report, based on thorough and non-partisan research, is widely disseminated to inform and influence policy, business, community, and advocacy leaders to make sound decisions.

Since the release of the first edition in 2004, the Partnership has made approximately 375 Economics of Education presentations and reached 11,000 individuals from business, education, and government agencies with a clear message that investing in education is essential to Georgia’s economic success.
