McDonnell announced Tuesday that Virginia will hold an education summit in Richmond Aug. 15-17. It will be hosted by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce.

Former Secretary of Education Jim Dyke and House Majority Leader Kirk Cox will serve as co-chairs of the summit.

Cox has been a teacher for 30 years. He says the summit will bring together reform leaders from around the country to develop strategies that will put the focus on teaching.

Cox says the goal is to make Virginia a national leader in education reforms that better prepare students for work in the 21st century.
