2009 Governors Education Symposium: Perfecting the Formula
The 2009 Governors Education Symposium, Perfecting the Formula: Effective Strategies = Educational Success was held on June 14-15, in Cary, North Carolina. The event, co-hosted by The Hunt Institute and the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices, focused on the education priorities outlined in the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA): standards and assessment, longitudinal data systems, teacher effectiveness, and turnaround support for failing schools. Twenty-one governors and state team members from 33 states and territories engaged in candid dialogue around the four ARRA assurances to better understand how it can work in their states and accomplish systemic education reform and lasting improvement.
