What would you do?
Andres Alonso, the No. 2 school official in New York City, was named the chief executive officer of the Baltimore school system yesterday.
Michelle Rhee, Chief Executive Officer and President of The New Teacher Project, a national non-profit organization based in New York City, accepted the nomination of Washington, D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty to become Chancellor of D.C. Public Schools on Tuesday.
Both school systems have had their fair share of problems with student achievement, violence, and deteriorating facilities.
What advice would you give these newly appointed leaders? If you were in their shoes, what would you do to improve these school systems?
