Summit on State 21st Century Skills Initiatives

On Wednesday, April 30th, Team ISEA Executive Director Jan Reinicke and I participated in a day long meeting at the NEA building with other state affiliates that have created partnerships with their state's Department of Education (and Chief School Officer), Governor, state education association, and business/corporate partners.

We heard from our colleagues in Wisconsin and West Virginia who have worked on building these partnerships within their states.

We had the opportunity to have table discussions around the possibilities, questions and concerns, does this fit our overall education vision/agenda?

One of my great friends that participated today was Donna DeKraii, president of the South Dakota Education Association (pictured here with me).
