Join Jeb Bush for the 9th Annual
National Summit on Education Reform

Registration for the 2016 Marquee Event is Now Open
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— The Foundation for Excellence in Education announces that general registration for its 2016 National Summit on Education Reform, hosted by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, is now open.

Now in its ninth year, the summit will be held in Washington, D.C. from November 30 to December 2at the Marriott Marquis Washington D.C. Governor Bush, Chair of the Foundation for Excellence in Education (ExcelinEd), will deliver the keynote address December 1.

“Today, too many children are stuck in failing schools, leaving them without the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in the 21st century global economy,” said Governor Bush. “We must massively disrupt our education system if we want to ensure our long-term national and economic security and give every individual the chance to succeed. Each year, our national summit gives policymakers the tools needed to improve the quality of education in their states and communities.”

Governor Bush will open the summit with a morning keynote presentation on Thursday, December 1. The remainder of the event will feature general sessions with nationally renowned speakers plus smaller strategy sessions featuring policy experts, legislators and educators. They will share approaches and strategies that work, as well as how to enact and implement them.

This unique gathering is a one-stop shop for state legislators and education leaders who want a comprehensive overview of all elements of education reform. The goal is to send them back home armed with the knowledge and know-how to champion all students in every classroom.

“The education landscape is in constant flux, every year bringing us new innovations, new strategies and new thought leaders,’’ said ExcelinEd CEO Patricia Levesque. “But the mission remains the same as it has been since the beginning of our reform movement – to reimagine America’s education in a way that touches every student with better resources, better opportunities and better preparation for success.”

Last year’s National Summit was attended by more than 900 education leaders from 45 states and Washington D.C.
