Pennsylvania Education Summit

The Pennsylvania Education Summit: Building a Pathway to College and Career Success will gather business leaders, teachers, school superintendents, curriculum specialists, post-secondary education professors and administrators; state lawmakers, legislative staff, executive agency professionals, workforce investment board members and staff, and other education stakeholders for a civil conversation on the public policy required to ensure our Commonwealth’s young people are “career and college ready.” The Pennsylvania Education Summit will highlight and support the efforts of the Corbett Administration and Pennsylvania General Assembly to design and implement education reforms that increase quality and accountability in Pennsylvania’s K-12 education system.

The Pennsylvania Education Summit is co-sponsored by the Pennsylvania Business Council Education Foundation, Team Pennsylvania Foundation, and Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children with the support of generous sponsors.

The event will be held at the Harrisburg Hilton on Thursday, June 13 and features a greeting by Governor Corbett and remarks by Cabinet members, senior lawmakers, education leaders, and business executives.
