The Broad Residency 2014-2016


Closing the achievement gap is one of the most pressing civil-rights struggles that the country faces. While examples of success in narrowing the gap exist, the chasm remains wide. To significantly resolve the inequality of education, systems, processes and leadership are required to support rapid innovations and reforms. Growing up, serving as a teacher assistant and working with leaders in underserved schools, I have seen what happens when these pillars do not exist. I am excited to have the opportunity to help ensure these pillars are in place and meaningful education reform can flourish.

While a Broad Resident, Lin Johnson III served as Chief Financial Officer at Shelby County Schools.
