The Broad Academy 2008
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.
When John Covington took the reins of Kansas City Schools, the district faced bankruptcy and roughly 75 percent of its students were not proficient in reading and mathematics. John led the district through tremendous growth, and within his first year, students made the greatest gains on state assessments since the beginning of their use. He subsequently helped launch the Education Achievement Authority of Michigan as the founding superintendent.
