Gov. Perdue Establishes the Governor’s Education Transformation Commission

Gov. Bev Perdue signed Executive Order 65 Monday, establishing the Governor’s Education Transformation Commission which will advise the Governor and provide oversight on the use of the Race to the Top funds and coordinate the use of these funds in order to implement the Career and College: Ready, Set, Go! Initiative across North Carolina.

“Part of my pledge for Ready, Set, Go! is that every student, no matter where he or she lives, will have access to a quality education. The Education Transformation Commission will help to coordinate and streamline efforts toward that goal,” said Perdue.

The Governor appointed Dr. Bill Harrison, chair of the State Board of Education, and the Governor’s Advisor for Education Transformation as the chair of the Commission.
