Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)

The nation’s first of the four regional interstate compacts for education, the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) was founded in 1948 by governors and legislators who recognized the link between education and economic vitality. Headquartered in Atlanta, SREB is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that works to improve education at every level in its 16 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.

The SREB helps policymakers make informed decisions by providing independent, accurate data and recommendations; helps educators strengthen student learning with professional development, proven practices and curricula; and helps policymakers, institutions and educators share scarce resources to accomplish more together than they could alone.

SREB’s  work is funded by appropriations from its member states, as well as by contracts and grants from foundations and from local, state and federal agencies.
