Southern Regional Education Board
SREB was created in 1948 by Southern governors and legislators who recognized the link between education and economic vitality. To this day, the organization maintains its focus on critical issues that hold the promise of improving quality of life by advancing public education. The region’s track record shows that setting goals and maintaining the commitment to work toward them can make a difference. The nation’s first regional interstate compact for education, SREB is today the most comprehensive, working directly with state leaders, schools and educators.
