About Us

Welcome to the Texas Alliance for Geographic Education!

The Texas Alliance for Geographic Education (TAGE) is part of National Geographic's network of alliances for geographic education. TAGE was established in 1986 under the joint leadership of Richard G. Boehm of Texas State University and James B. Kracht of Texas A&M University. Sarah W. Bednarz of Texas A&M replaced Kracht in 1987. TAGE is a University-based, statewide partnership that provides teachers with professional development, networking, model programs, and teaching materials. We are supported by over 8,000 members, and we promote public awareness of the importance of geographic literacy and skills to prepare students to succeed as well-informed citizens in an increasingly global society.
