Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to Speak at 2019 National Seminar

The Education Writers Association is pleased to announce that U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos will speak at EWA’s 2019 National Seminar in Baltimore in May. This will mark the first time she has appeared at an EWA event.

After opening remarks, Secretary DeVos plans to sit down with New York Times education reporter Erica Green for a conversation, and then field questions from attendees. The exact timing of this keynote session will be announced soon.

Last week, we unveiled the preliminary agenda for the May 6-8 seminar, which will be hosted by the Johns Hopkins University School of Education. The theme this year is “Student Success, Safety, and Well-Being.” The conference is designed to give participants the skills, understanding and inspiration to improve their coverage of education at all levels.
