Former Chancellor
Education Achievement Authority, Mich.

When the status of our nation, relative to measurable student academic achievement, is compared to other industrialized nations, the results are both staggering and frightening. The educational stewardship of the nation’s youth rests on the shoulders of public school superintendents. Their success and the success of their districts may very well determine the future of our economy and the freedoms we all enjoy and take for granted. In this regard, I am driven to make a meaningful contribution to improve public education as an urban superintendent.
