Periodically, the Governor's Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) publishes an analysis of a topic relevant to education in Georgia. These electronic bulletins attempt to link theory, policy, and practice and intend to bring to light important information that is generally not focused upon by education communities or the media. Bulletins may be original analyses of raw data, discussions of new, high-profile national reports and studies, explanations of descriptive data that is already available, or a combination of all three. GOSA hopes these analyses will inform classroom practice and education reform.
