Welcome to the web site of the Prince George's Business–Education Alliance
(PGBEA). An independent, nonprofit organization located in Prince George's
County, Maryland, the Alliance was created to ensure that the children
of our county receive an excellent education, from kindergarten through
college. We believe that the future prosperity of Prince George's and
the well–being of its citizens depend on the quality of its schools, and
that how we care for our children and the opportunities we offer them
reflect our values as a community.
The Alliance provides a forum in which business
and education leaders come together to identify and address issues of
common concern. Through research, policy analysis, and advocacy, PGBEA
seeks to inform elected officials, the media, and county residents about
the role and importance of public education; promote cooperation between
businesses and educators; improve the management and efficiency of our
educational institutions; and enhance the local, regional, and national
reputation of the county's public schools and colleges.
The Alliance has three major goals:
- Secure the financial resources needed to
provide a world-class education for all Prince George's County students.
- Improve perceptions of the county's public
schools and colleges.
- Build confidence in the county's educational
institutions on the part of elected and appointed officials and the
