Welcome to the new school year and welcome to the Association of American Educators' online publication, Reform Matters! This education reform-focused publication features both original AAE content and a compilation of the latest news from the growing education reform community.


Feel free to forward this to colleagues, or encourage them to join our email list. We hope that you will provide us with feedback and consider submitting an article or study for consideration.   

Note: We are proud to be member-driven and only take positions on issues after our members are surveyed at a majority.
