WACO -- Tonight the 4th Annual Waco Education Summit kicked off.
The three day long event educates people around the Waco area on issues that affect our kids educational success.
The presentations cover topics like poverty, child development and prepping students for college.
"It's our way of, um, aligning to take responsibility for every -- for the education of every citizen because the education of our citizenry is what leads to our quality of life. It's what leads us to be a vibrant community and so we, everyone has to take responsibility for the education of everyone," said Ashley Allison, Executive Director for the Waco Foundation.
On-site registration is still available for Thursday and Friday at the Waco Convention Center.
