Education was a series of agencies that were part of the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order's Coalition for Progress. Education's mandate was to promote the values of the New Order throughout education. Unlike SAGEducation members, Education personnel did not teach, but produced reports of how sectors could restructure their education systems to reflect the ideology of the New Order. However, Education's activities were met with derision throughout the Galactic Empire. The Select Committee used Education as a dumping ground for politically useful but incompetent personnel, and being reassigned to Education was referred to as being "sent to the idea dusters."
