TRANSFORMATION COMMISSION (GETC)
In September of 2010, Governor Beverly Perdue established the 26-member Governor's Education Transformation Commission (GETC) to provide oversight and consultation on the use of Race to the Top funds and to coordinate the use of these funds to implement the Career and College: Ready, Set, Go! Initiative across North Carolina.
"Part of my pledge for Ready, Set, Go! is that every student, no matter where he or she lives, will have access to a quality education. The Education Transformation Commission will help to coordinate and streamline efforts toward that goal," said Governor Perdue.
