In Case You Missed It: Bush Institute's Education Reform Director on the State of Dallas Education

January 26, 2017 1 minute Read by Brittney Bain

This week, the Bush Center hosted “Educated City,” an Engage program that partnered with the Dallas Festival of Ideas to explore the future of education in Dallas. The program included conversations with Mayor Mike Rawlings along with other community and school leaders and parents.

The Bush Institute’s Education Reform Director, Anne Wicks Humphrey, kicked off the evening with a fascinating presentation on the current state of education in the city. She highlighted how the Bush Institute's State of Our Cities tool can be used to compare Dallas to cities around the nation, as well as countries around the world, to better understand where local students are excelling and where challenges exist.  

You can watch her remarks as well as the rest of the program below.  And check out data on more than 100 cities around the country using State of Our Cities at bushcenter.org/StateofOurCities.
