A Brief History of LFA's State Alliance Network
In 2000 the national Learning First Alliance launched an initiative to form state-level alliances similar to the national effort. Partnerships between the Learning First Alliance and state-level alliances seek to provide new models of how associations and organizations within a state can work together to boost student achievement. The national Alliance currently supports a pilot network of thirteen state-level alliances.
