Education Governors for the 21st Century
In today's contentious political climate, governors often lobby for educational reforms using tools similar to those they employ when campaigning for office. Education Governors for the 21st Century (28 pages, PDF), a new report from the James B. Hunt Jr. Institute for Educational Leadership and Policy, profiles governors from both parties who have successfully achieved and sustained public education improvements in their states. Funded by the Wallace Foundation, the report offers state leaders guidance on how they can promote education reform through strategic alliances with educators, business leaders, and communities.
