School leaders must provide the support and resources to enable all students to excel academically. Quality education is the key to future opportunities for students of all backgrounds. Urban superintendents must have the capacity to encourage change and hold teachers and administrators responsible for closing ethnic and income achievement gaps.

As superintendent for The School District of Philadelphia, Bill Hite has worked to make Pennsylvania’s largest public school system a model for how to scale equity and rigor. Under his leadership, the district has turned around underperforming schools and worked to ensure students in every neighborhood have access to high-quality schools.
