There's a new education reform group in town. The Business Council of Alabama introduced the new non-profit business and education alliance today at its annual governmental affairs conference in Point Clear.
The organization is fronted by former state Superintendent of Education Joe Morton and former state Representative Jay Love.
Morton will serve as the chairman and president of the organization while Love says he will help with fundraising and coalition building.
Organizers say they aim to merge the business and public education communities of Alabama.
Morton says the organization will provide research and support for education programs.
