The Georgia Literacy Commission (GLC) was formed after a Deloitte study revealed the potential crisis looming for Georgia's businesses that are struggling to identify an educated and literate workforce for jobs now and in the future. As a result, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education, and Literacy For All have partnered to create the GLC.

​Business leaders, education experts and a variety of other key stakeholders (see About page) convened statewide hearings during summer 2017 to address the state's trajectory in improving low literacy for Georgia's adults and children. The GLC is led by co-chairs Sandra Deal, Georgia's First Lady; Teya Ryan, president and CEO of Georgia Public Broadcasting; Wendell Dallas, VP, Operations, Atlanta Gas Light; and Phil Jacobs, retired president AT&T, Georgia.
