Lt. Governor Bethany Hall-Long chosen to participate in national Fellowship on education policy 

Selected as one of twenty state officials from across the nation, Lt. Governor Hall-Long will participate in a nine month national fellowship on state-level education policy.

Washington, D.C. – Lt. Governor Bethany Hall-Long will join a group of twenty state officials from across the country who have been selected to participate in the Hunt-Kean Leadership Fellows Program on education policy. The fellowship, named after former North Carolina Governor Jim Hunt and former New Jersey Governor Tom Kean, is a bipartisan group assembled to discuss the importance of educational standards, aligned assessments, and accountability systems. Over a nine month period, fellows will be immersed in a variety of state-level education policy initiatives and ideas to share with their respective states.

“As an educator and Lt. Governor, I have made it a priority to focus on the growth and success of all Delaware students.” Said Lt. Governor Bethany Hall-Long. “My journey in education has greatly impacted my desire to promote and work for all who seek to succeed through education. I am very excited to be part of the Hunt-Kean Leadership Fellows program and actively work with the Hunt Institute to explore more resources, strategic ideas and cultivate my passion for education.”

The fellowship, which kicks-off December 6-8 in Washington, D.C. will include panel discussions with former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, Fordham Institute President Mike Petrilli, and National Alliance for Public Charter Schools President Nina Rees, as well as a tour of the Capital City Public Charter School in Washington D.C. Before the second convening in August 2018, fellows will have the opportunity to participate in regional visits to innovative programs and state-specific briefings in their home states.

Since its launch in 2014, the Hunt-Kean Leadership Fellows program has established a network of over 70 fellows representing 44 states including state legislators, attorneys general, lt. governors, governors and members of congress.
