Susan Colby, Bridgespan Group B. Chancellor Michelle Rhee, District of Columbia Public Schools C. Kevin Chavous, Center for Education Reform D. Secretary Arne Duncan, U.S. Department of Education To find out the answers to these and many other questions, watch the newly posted video clips from the general sessions from this year’s Summit, including the welcome & opening remarks, a panel on scaling impact, a conversation between Secretary Duncan and Representative George Miller, and the concluding session on closing the achievement gap as today’s biggest civil rights issue.
