The History of A+ Education Partnership

A+ Education Partnership was founded in 1991 to unite business, civic, government, and education leaders around one common goal: improving student opportunity and achievement for every child in Alabama, no matter their zip code or circumstance. A+ worked relentlessly to become the foremost change agent in K-12 education in the state by speaking out for progress in education and conducting town hall meetings across the state to discuss a blueprint for improving public education. When resulting legislation was defeated, A+ chose to stay the course.

Today, A+ continues with the promotion of policies but now also works directly with schools to demonstrate that with high expectations and support for teachers and students, more students can excel in education. Some highlights of our past accomplishments are below.
