The Edmentum Educator Network has grown to over 150 members, and in early November, we hosted our first Educator Summit, where we brought an incredible group of 19 educators together for two days in our Richardson, Texas, office. Created by educators for educators, the Educator Summit became an embodiment of the passion and inspiration that moves people to do great things for those two days.

As we move out of the Common Core period and dive deeper into ESSA requirements, I think that we will continue to see the move to write and define state-specific criteria for standards. I think that we could continue to see groups of states bring educators together to share their learning and redefine standards as a cohort to improve learning for all students.
