"Education is tied to economic development. If we are able to create jobs, it's because we raised the education level." – Larry Sharp, Chief Development Officer, California State University, San Bernardino and Co-Founder of Alliance for Education
A combination of poor test scores, high drop-out rates and a shortage of educated and qualified workers led the County Superintendent of Schools, local educators, government, business, labor, community and faith-based organizations and concerned community members to create the Alliance for Education in 2002. Today, the Executive Board of the Alliance for Education works diligently with business and community partners to foster student engagement, family involvement and sustained economic and workforce development to achieve a vibrant economy and healthy communities across San Bernardino County.
