Education Forums to be Offered for Local Candidates and Leaders
Each election year, the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education presents a half-day education policy primer for local school board and state legislative candidates and community leaders. This year’s program will be presented June 12- 20 in five Georgia communities. The Partnership is encouraging Georgia Chamber members to make sure their local candidates know about the events and encourage them to participate.
