Gov. Deal’s new Education Reform Commission is comprehensively studying the state education system, including the QBE funding formula, access to early-learning programs, the recruitment and retention of high-quality instructors, and expanding school options for Georgia families.


The commission will submit recommendations to Deal by Aug. 1, with some going into effect as early as the 2016-2017 schoolyear.


Dr. Charles Knapp, former president of the University of Georgia, chairs the commission. Subcommittees include: Funding Reform; Teacher Recruitment, Retention and Compensation; Early Childhood; Move When Ready; and Expanding School Choice.


The Commission’s website lists its members and meeting schedules and agendas. Subcommittee dates will be added periodically.
