Eric Gordon, the CEO of the Cleveland district, has been selected as the Urban Educator of the Year.

Known as the Green-Garner Award, the honor is given by the Council of the Great City Schools. The council said that since the 2012 adoption of Cleveland's "plan for transforming schools," the district has seen increases in graduation rates, family engagement, and student enrollment.

Gordon, who has been the superintendent since 2011, was given the task of putting the plan into effect.
