“Transforming Detroit School System” Article in Scholastic Administrator

Date posted: September 29, 2010

My article on the poster district for urban woes appeared in Scholastic Administrator magazine, which is read by nearly a quarter million of today's school leaders.

The article describes Detroit's bold plan to close schools while improving student performance. If it succeeds, Detroit will have the new blueprint for urban turnarounds.

This was one of the most challenging articles I've written all year. I'm very proud of the research that went into it. The editors at SA should be applauded for their support of my suggestion to cover this controversial and difficult topic.
