A Passion for Saving Schools on the Brink

February 22, 2017 3:01

Sharon Griffin, the chief of schools in Tennessee’s Shelby County Schools, has led an urgent effort to turn around the academic performance of more than 20 low-performing schools in Memphis. Several of the schools in the district’s iZone have made important progress on student achievement and are cited as evidence that with the right resources and freedom to experiment, homegrown educators like Griffin are in the best position to turn around schools in the most dire circumstances. “I believe a school shouldn’t have to be in critical condition to get help,” Griffin says. This video was produced as part of Education Week’s Leaders To Learn From project, recognizing outstanding school district leaders from around the country. More at http://leaders.edweek.org
