Lisa Graham Keegan

CEO, Education Breakthrough Network
Lisa Graham Keegan has been a champion of education reform for over 25 years. As a state representative in the mid-1990s, she led officials in Arizona to pass a charter school law that was one of the first of its kind in the country. Keegan also played an integral role in the successful movement to update content and graduation standards for students in Arizona public schools. In 1999, she was recognized as the National Republican Women Educator of the Year and received the first ever Friedman Foundation Award for Leadership in Educational Choice.
Following her time in the state legislature, Keegan continued her public service as Arizona's Superintendent of Public Instruction from 1995 to 2001. She came to DC to accept the role of CEO for the Education Leaders Council in 2001 and has been a key player in national education policy over the past two decades. As a vice chairman of the political platform committee at the 2008 National Republican Convention, she helped craft the party's formal stance on education policy issues. Keegan also served as a senior advisor for education policy to John McCain's presidential campaigns in 2000 and 2008 and has provided her policy expertise to governors Jeb Bush and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
...
Keegan currently serves as the CEO of the Education Breakthrough Network, an online community she founded in 2010 for advocates of school choice. She is also a member of the Century Council board in DC and active member of her church and community in Arizona.

In the 2004 issue of Education Next, Chester Finn, Jr., president of the Thomas B. Fordham Foundation, and Lisa Graham Keegan, the former chief executive officer of the Education Leaders Council, point to three trends that they argue "obviate" the need for school boards: state centralization of funding, statewide accountability systems, and expansion of choice.

Lisa Graham Keegan

Lisa Graham Keegan has spent 10 years as Principal Partner at the Keegan Company, where she leads numerous projects, writes and speaks on critical issues in American education. Keegan's expertise and outspoken nature have made her a sought after education reform expert who has worked with national education leaders, the media, U.S. Congress, state legislative bodies, business groups, policy organizations, community groups, and the education industry.
Most recently, Mrs. Keegan led the development and launch of the Education Breakthrough Network, a national "one-stop-shop" and online community for all organizations and individuals who offer or support school choice. She currently serves as a Senior Advisor to National School Choice Week.
From 2004 through 2010, she served as advisor to numerous private companies, non-profit organizations, and briefly as an assistant County Manager in Maricopa County, AZ. She served as education advisor and spokesperson for the McCain 2008 Campaign for President, and recently co-authored the education chapter for Newt Gingrich's 2010 bestseller, "To Save America".
Mrs. Keegan was Chief Executive Officer of the Education Leaders Council (ELC)in Washington DC from 2001 until 2004. Prior to ELC, Mrs. Keegan spent a decade serving as an Arizona state official, where she led that state's education reform movement. She was the elected state school chief from 1995 to 2001 and from 1991 to 1994 she served as Vice-Chairman and Chairman of the House Education Committee and authored much of Arizona's education reform legislation in the early 1990's.
In Arizona, Mrs. Keegan advanced clear and challenging academic standards gauged by publicly transparent assessments, and fought successfully for the implementation of school choice, including Arizona's landmark charter school and tuition tax credit laws. She also led efforts to revise the state's school finance formulas to reflect a commitment to equal access…a job she considers unfinished.
Mrs. Keegan's leadership in Arizona earned her a national reputation as a strong advocate for student-based education policies. In March of 1999, Drs. Milton and Rose Friedman personally presented Mrs. Keegan with the first Milton and Rose D. Friedman Foundation Award for Leadership in Educational Choice.
...
Mrs. Keegan graduated from Stanford University in 1981 with a Bachelor of Arts in human language. She earned a Masters Degree in communications disorders from Arizona State University (ASU) in 1983. Keegan lives in Peoria with her husband, Justice of the Peace John Keegan, who served as Mayor of Peoria, Arizona for a decade.


John Tierney on Public v Private School Performance

WASHINGTON -- When Arizona schools superintendent Lisa Graham Keegan and a group of predominantly conservative educators began the Education Leaders Council in 1995, their proclaimed goal was to upset an educational establishment long dominated by the Democrats and left-leaning teachers unions.

Nearly a decade later, Keegan and her allies have become the establishment -- and the left is crying foul.
...
"Welcome to the vast right-wing conspiracy," laughed Keegan, chief executive of the Education Leaders Council, who was a candidate for secretary of education after Bush was elected.
...
Keegan said it was only natural that the Bush administration should want to correct a liberal bias in American education by giving grants to groups that share its philosophy. While she rejects the "right-wing" tag, she says "it is necessary to be ideological in education these days if you want to promote academic standards, school choice and new routes to certifying teachers that work against the grain of current ideas in education."
