GAE and GFT are the only professional education associations with democratically elected leadership, and they are the only organizations that encourage teachers and ESPs to become engaged, outspoken l...eaders and advocates for their profession. See More

GAE has been very beneficial to public education in Georgia. Most beneficial policies and laws positively affecting education are because of GAE.

Happy Holidays from GAE
Greetings from Deborah Bridges at the #NEARA17 in Boston!
Can you bridge your message under pressure? The #EdSummit messaging workshop tested just that, with a few laughs.

Tax windfall won't help GA education.

Georgia leaders reach deal to cut state’s top income tax rate:

Gov. Nathan Deal and legislative leaders announced an agreement Tuesday on changes to the state tax code.


The plan would cut the top state income tax rate — the rate most Georgians pay on a majority of their income — from 6 percent to 5.75 percent starting next year.

It would also double the standard deduction for Georgians. For married couples filing joint returns, the deduction would go from $3,000 to $6,000.

The proposal also would exempt jet fuel from state and most local sales taxes.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims and their families of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and the Parkland, Florida community.

It looks like you may be having problems playing this video. If so, please try restarting your browser.

These are the victims of the Florida high school shooting. We should remember their names and faces.

HB 787 is being heard in the full House Education Committee. This bill would use previously unallocated general state tax dollars to increase funding of state charter schools. The 2018–19 state budget still contains a $167 million austerity cut to K–12 public education. If there are additional funds in the state coffers they should be shared by all public schools. As Rep. Jan Jones noted in asking for these dollars for state charter schools, “some people say money doesn’t mat...ter, but you have to have enough.“

We believe that all public schools “have to have enough.“ Please contact the members of the House Education Committee to let them know that HB 787, favoring state charter schools, should NOT be passed. Instead, the legislature should restore the $167 million austerity cut, which would result in additional funds for ALL public schools, including state charter schools.

Don't miss out! Speaking up for Georgia's students and educators is what matters most. Let's stand on the front lines together.

Public & Government Service

Jump to 1:05 to hear GAE's Director of Government Relations, Starla Tanner, comment on HB 788, which would allow students to change school zones if “an individual has authorized use of an address for purposes of establishing residency."

Some education groups are very wary of the measure, saying it could overcrowd desirable schools and drain students from underperforming schools.

BILL UPDATE: HB 217 passed the House Ways and Means Committee; now being considered by a Conference Committee. HB 2017 is a voucher expansion tax credit bill that would increase the current cap to $85 million. CONTACT YOUR LEGISLATOR today - on your non-work devices - and ask them to support public education by not supporting HB 217.

Well said from Georgia Teacher of the Year. No matter what organization you belong to, speaking up for Georgia's students and educators are what matters most. Let's stand on the front lines together in the fight for public education.

HB 788 is up, which would allow students to attend schools outside their attendance zone. Thoughts?

House Bill 788 lets students attend school where a friend lives

Interesting Wednesday read.

The Tucson Unified School District's blacklist appears to have been kept under wraps for two decades.
