On November 29 – December 1, 2017, Governor Jeb Bush and the Foundation for Excellence in Education (ExcelinEd) will host the 2017 National Summit on Education Reform at the Omni Nashville Hotel in Nashville, Tenn.
Organized by ExcelinEd, the annual National Summit on Education Reform is the nation’s premier gathering of education reformers. It provides state and local policymakers, education leaders and advocates with comprehensive information on evolving laws, new trends, successful policies and the latest innovations that are transforming education for the 21st century.
The 2016 National Summit was attended by more than 1,000 education leaders from 47 states. General session speakers included Governor Jeb Bush, 66th U.S. Secretary of State and ExcelinEd Board Member Dr. Condoleezza Rice, education innovator Sal Khan and three former U.S. secretaries of education.

By learning what is working—and not working—in other states and school districts, attendees leave the National Summit armed with the knowledge and networks to advance bold education reform in their states. This uncommon conference annually serves as a catalyst for energizing and accelerating the reform movement across the nation.

- Measure and report the quality of education,
- Hold schools accountable for learning,
- Incentivize student achievement,
- Use technology to customize learning for every student,
