Education Leaders & Policymakers Meet in D.C. for FEE National Summit

Education policymakers and leaders meet in Washington D.C. November 27-28 for the Foundation for Excellence in Education’s (FEE) fifth annual Excellence in Action National Summit on Education Reform. This two-day event is a forum to learn what works, what doesn’t and what’s next to transform education for the 21st century.
