Governor Announces Ten Public Discussions at Delaware Schools: How together we can prepare Delaware students for tomorrow's job market
Governor Markell announced that he, along with Delaware Secretary of Education Lillian Lowery and others will hit the road between now and the end of the year for ten public "Conversations about Stronger Schools."
These "Conversations" will focus on efforts underway to improve student performance, support teachers and make sure Delaware's children graduate ready to succeed in work or college. The Governor, Education Secretary, educators, administrators and private sector employers will talk about a path to stronger schools and give Delawareans an opportunity to ask questions and engage on elements of the plan.
On Monday, Delaware will be represented at the Education Nation summit in New York City, which highlights best practices in public education from around the world. On Tuesday, the Governor will join hundreds of educators, academic and business leaders, administrators and others at the University of Delaware for a seminar called the "Race to Deliver," which focuses on the progress we have made here at home to make our public schools stronger. On Wednesday, states from around the country will send representatives to Delaware to learn what we've done right after winning the national Race to the Top contest. The most critical discussions will happen at a series of open "Conversation About Stronger Schools" taking place up and down the state between now and the end of the year.
