Check out this week’s ExcelinEd highlights from SXSW EDU! From a policy forum with Governor Jeb Bush to two sessions on innovation, ExcelinEd is working to transform education to unlock lifelong opportunity and success for each and every child.
Governor Jeb Bush joined national education reporter Laura Meckler to discuss disruptive policies that can transform today’s classroom into tomorrow’s ideal laboratory of learning.
