Education Commission of the States (ECS) strives to keep its constituency apprised of education policy trends across the states. To provide a comprehensive overview of educational priorities outlined by governors, ECS summarized the education proposals and accomplishments detailed in every 2015 State of the State address delivered to date. Each state's full summary is available on ECS's website. This report highlights the top six education priorities for governors in 2015: (1) Early Learning; (2)? School Finance; (3)? School Choice; (4)? Teaching Quality; (5)? Workforce Development/Career and Technical Education; and (6)? Postsecondary Funding, Affordability, and Access. To date, governors in 37 states have presented their 2015 state of the state addresses. Although new investments in business, technology, and infrastructure received considerable attention, improving education from preschool to college was, without a doubt, a top priority. Governors proposed an assortment of strategies to enhance education and ultimately boost the economic and social growth of their citizens.
