Miami To Host National Education Summit


(Washington, DC – October 23, 2018)

The Center for Education Reform (CER), the nation’s leading advocate for opportunity & innovation in education, is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a summit and gala on October 26, 2018 at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Miami, Florida, a state that is the gateway to Latin America and is known for innovations in every education sector. With a slogan of “opportunity, innovation and one America” the event brings together a high-octane list of speakers focused on improving educational results for students of all backgrounds.

The bi-partisan line-up features well known people from Florida – political, business and education leaders – including former Governor Jeb Bush, T. Willard Fair, President and CEO of the Urban League of Greater Miami, Kaplan University president Andy Rosen, Charter Schools USA CEO Jon Hage, Academic President Fernanda Zulueta, US Department of Education Assistant Secretary and former Florida Lt. Gov. Frank Brogan along with many local leaders and educators.

Other nationally recognized leaders in education advancement participating in the summit include former Governor Tommy Thompson of Wisconsin, and current Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló. The line up also includes the reigning Miss America Nia Franklin, former U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige, and top education leaders, tech gurus, investors, policymakers, reformers, and postsecondary officials.

CER Founder and CEO Jeanne Allen commented, “Our first 25 years have been rewarding but so much more remains to be done. We cannot afford to let our students fall further behind the rest of the world. That is bad for the students, and bad for America.

“Our summit and gala will be a springboard for new ideas and solutions to move from reforming education to transforming it for learners at all levels.”
