Justina Nixon-Saintil had the privilege of being among 300 education leaders, students, and teachers at NBC's Education Nation summit held at the New York Public Library a few weeks back. Guest speakers and panelists included Arne Duncan (Secretary of Education), Condoleezza Rice, Chelsea Clinton, Jeb Bush, and presidents and CEOs from multiple corporations and organizations. She discusses three topics that are most pertinent to education programs at the Verizon Foundation: Common Core standards implementation, building a STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) pipeline, and technology integration in education.
