Superintendent Talks about What it Takes to Achieve Student Success

Winston Brooks will participate in 2013 Education Nation Summit next week.

APS Superintendent Winston Brooks will participate in the fourth annual Education Nation Summit. This year's summit will explore “What It Takes” for us as a nation to ensure students are successfully prepared for college, career and beyond. Leading experts and stakeholders – from parents, teachers, and students to policymakers and employers – will delve into critical factors that impact students’ chances of success. The Summit will take place October 6-8 at the New York Public Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman building.

The three-day gathering brings together more than 300 of the country’s top thought leaders and influencers in education, government, business, philanthropy, and media to discuss the relationship between education and opportunity – helping to engage the U.S. in an unprecedented discussion about how to improve education and prepare our youth for the jobs of the future. NBCUniversal News Group broadcast, cable, and digital platforms will provide coverage of the guests and discussions throughout the Summit.

The public is invited to join the conversation by uploading a short video with your thoughts on “What It Takes” for student success at or by sending a tweet with #WhatItTakes.
