We’re coming to you live from the 2019 National Summit on Education Reform in San Diego, where ExcelinEd is hosting more than 1,000 legislators, state superintendents, policymakers and advocates all working to build a brighter future for America’s families.
Despite a city-wide power outage, #EIE19 kicked off with an energizing discussion between Governor Jeb Bush and Chris Stewart. Their keynote conversation challenged state policymakers to stay the course and continue to implement student-centered policies.
Based on findings in his recent bestseller The Coddling of the American Mind, Dr. Jonathan Haidt offered unique perspectives and insights into how to help today’s students become the critical thinkers and resilient leaders we urgently need.
During the afternoon session, a distinguished panel of education leaders reflected on the lasting impact of the Supreme Court’s landmark, unanimous decision in Brown v. Board of Education, our nation’s progress over the past six decades, and, most especially, the hard work still ahead to advance educational equity for each and every child.
