Nation’s foremost education policy convening celebrates a decade of Choice, Innovation and Accountability

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Chairman of the Foundation for Excellence in Education (ExcelinEd), will host the 2017 National Summit on Education Reform in Nashville, Tennessee, on November 29 – December 1. ExcelinEd’s flagship event, now in its 10th year, convenes leaders from across the nation and around the world to share strategies to improve the quality of education for each and every child.

“For America to remain the greatest nation on earth, we must tap into the potential of all our children, put opportunity within their grasp and allow them to rise on their own abilities and initiative,” said Governor Bush. “That means doing the hard work of transforming education across America through bold leadership, innovative ideas and proven strategies. I hope our 10th annual National Summit on Education Reform serves as a catalyst for helping policymakers achieve a future where student-centered education unlocks lifelong opportunity and success for all children.”


Governor Bush will open the National Summit’s content-rich agenda with a keynote address on Thursday, November 30. Activities that follow focus on reform topics of educational choice, innovation and accountability in general sessions with nationally renowned speakers, targeted strategy sessions and hands-on workshops featuring policy experts, legislators and educators sharing strategies to improve learning for all students.

Each year, the National Summit on Education Reform serves as a strategic convening for leaders who want a timely, comprehensive overview of all elements of transformative education policy. The unique gathering equips them with the knowledge, know-how and a network of experts to champion students in every classroom across America. Last year’s National Summit convened 1,045 education leaders from 47 states, with 94 percent of attendees praising the event as “outstanding” or “above average.”
