ATLANTA, June 28—Duffey Communications, one of the southeast’s largest independent marketing and public relations firms, has formed a new education practice following the recent addition of the University of Phoenix, the Devereux School and the Technology Education Coalition to its client list.
 
“Our team has more than 18 years of experience working with various colleges, county schools, school boards and private educational institutions,” said Lee Duffey, president and founder of Duffey Communications.  “We recognize the growing need for education experts and by strategically organizing a comprehensive practice area, educational institutions can rely on Duffey to work with them to help make significant education recommendations for virtually every aspect of their business.”
 
The firm is working with the University of Phoenix to increase awareness for its newly opened Atlanta campus and to position the school as a leader in continuing education within the metro Atlanta marketplace.
 
The Technology Education Coalition, meanwhile, is a new group dedicated to increasing math and science scores among pre K-12 students in Georgia. The TEC has elected Lee Duffey as chairman, and he will be responsible for guiding the group’s efforts to incorporate technology and training resources into the classroom through this public-private partnership.
 
“Educational opportunities and the availability of a qualified work force are among the primary criteria in attracting and retaining technology investments in every state.  Paramount to this effort is building a solid educational foundation of math and science related skills for K-12 students,” said Duffey.  “This will only be possible with the cooperation of both public and private resources and the interjection of real-world technology innovations into our children’s classrooms.  Working together, we can increase technology adoption in schools and develop more technology jobs for those graduates.”
 
The practice will draw upon Duffey’s proprietary Ignition approach, which offers a one-day strategic planning session, crisis communications planning, an in-house expert panel and an industry-focused news bureau and speakers’ bureau.
 
Other education clients include Georgia State University, University of Texas, Cobb County School System and the University of Georgia.
