About - Commissions
Throughout SREB’s history, governors have taken the lead on critical education issues by convening policymakers from member states. SREB commissions bring greater attention to these topics, build consensus and make recommendations to address the challenges. The focus of a commission often arises from SREB’s Goals for Education; commission recommendations always inform revisions of the Goals.
