In November 2014, educators from more than 300 National Blue Ribbon Schools from around the nation met in the District of Columbia to talk about the hard work that led to their gains and national awards. Staff from the Progress blog of the U.S. Department of Education asked a number of these educators about what other schools could learn from them.
