The Broad Academy 2014-2015


Improving a low-performing school system in deep financial crisis is no easy task. As deputy superintendent of The School District of Philadelphia, Paul Kihn focused on stabilizing the system while creating an infrastructure to deepen expertise for serving historically underserved communities. Under his leadership, the district fundamentally shifted the way it engages with and supports students, educators and the public to ensure no student slips through the cracks — including the implementation of restorative practices to improve school climate.
