#iaedsummit Review & Video Highlights

The Iowa Education Summit was held on July 25 & 26 in Des Moines. Over 1600 educators, parents, legislators, and business people attend the day and a half event. The purpose was to build a consensus for how to give all students a world-class education, no matter where they live.

Prior to the summit Governor Branstad held town hall meetings and education roundtables with business leaders, college and university presidents, and teachers. Videos of Governor Branstad’s Roundtables are available at https://educateiowa.eduvision.tv/Default.aspx. Also, the Iowa Department of Education released a new report, “Rising to Greatness: An Imperative for Improving Iowa’s Schools.” The report provides critical information that will help policymakers, educators, parents and other Iowans target solutions in a statewide effort to restore Iowa’s standing as a leader in education.

During the summit, on-site participants and live streaming viewers connected via Twitter using the hashtag #iaedsummit. Since then Jason Glass (@jasonglassIA) asks that we “use hashtag #IAEdFuture to keep momentum/discussion going on future of education for Iowa! Let’s build our plan!”
