Two big names in local education are heading to the Big Apple to discuss education in the nation.
Philadelphia School District Superintendent Dr. William Hite will join Delaware Gov. Jack Markell and others as part for NBC News’ Education Nation Summit in New York.
Markell was scheduled to participate in a panel discussion on teacher training Monday afternoon during the national education summit at the New York Public Library.
Markell also was to be interviewed earlier in the day about increasing early learning opportunities in advance of a panel discussion including Harriet Dichter, executive director of the Delaware Office of Early Learning.
Officials say the fourth annual summit is bringing together more than 300 leaders in education, government, business, philanthropy and media.
