The nation’s governors will meet in February to discuss “the urgent need to improve America’s high schools,” the National Governors Association and the group Achieve announced last week.

Participants at what is being billed as a summit, to be held Feb. 26-27 in Washington, will focus on ensuring that the bar for achievement is high enough to prepare all graduates for college and work, and that all students receive the necessary academic support to meet rigorous graduation standards.

The gathering—which will follow the national education summits held in 1989, 1996, 1999, and 2001—will be co-chaired by Gov. Mark Warner of Virginia and Kerry Killinger, the vice chairman of Achieve and the chief executive officer of Washington Mutual, a Seattle-based financial-services company.

Achieve, based in Washington, is a nonprofit organization created by the governors after their 1996 summit that promotes higher standards and high school reform.
