Education Week Leaders to Learn From
After reviewing hundreds of nominations, Education Week‘s annual Leaders To Learn From report chose 16 forward-thinking district leaders who are working to enact, and inspire, change in our nation’s public schools. We were so glad to learn that Mark D. Benigni, Superintendent of Meriden Public Schools in Connecticut, was selected for this honor for the district's implementation of expanded learning time.
This morning, there is a live event in Washington, D.C. Keynote speakers include U.S. Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education Deborah S. Delisle and Adviser to the Premier and Minister of Education in Ontario Michael Fullan. In addition to this year’s honorees, more than 150 of our nation’s most influential superintendents, education leaders, elected officials, and representatives from the U.S. Department of Education will attend the event, which will be also be live streamed at edweek.org/leaders.
