L4L's 2021 Annual Report

State of Education 2021

Learn4Life (L4L), the Metro Atlanta Regional Education Partnership, is made up of school districts, communities, businesses, and nonprofits. Driven by our shared belief that all children deserve the opportunity to reach their potential, we use data to identify best practices at key milestones in a student’s education. We then work with our partners to scale these solutions, addressing academic achievement and workforce readiness for 600,000 students in metro Atlanta.

This collaborative model has yielded positive results in Cincinnati, Dallas, Minneapolis and other cities. We are making Atlanta the next success story by combining our energy, passion, and skills to make a collective impact on our children’s futures and the vitality of our region.


Our model is built around six indicators in a student’s educational career, Research has proven that success at each indicator propels the child to the next. We have embraced these milestones as our community indicators on which we focus our data analysis and our strategies. Learn more



Our first several years have been marked by collaboration and action. We now have identified an initial set of strategies that are proven to move our region forward. By continuing to share data, learn from each other, and highlight and invest in practices that are working here today, we believe we can put Atlanta on a trajectory to ensure all of our students learn for today, but also learn for life.
