When it comes to a state's attitude on and adoption of education technology, a lot of positive change can be driven by the state superintendent. "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world," said Nelson Mandela. These superintendents know the weight of that truth and work to effect positive change in their districts. In this post we highlight six state and district superintendents across the country for their roles in helping students through the adoption of edtech and other forward-thinking initiatives.
Schools are adapting to the 21st Century due to the hard work of superintendents. These superintendents have worked to ensure that the students, teachers, and classrooms are future ready. We salute these empowering superintendents: Dr. Tommy Bice of Alabama, Tom Torlakson of California, Alberto Carvalho of Florida, Mike Flanagan of Michigan, Luvelle Brown of New York, and Karen Rue of Texas.
