As published in Maureen Downey's "Get Schooled" blog, "Gwinnett County Public School system has been declared the nation’s top urban school system by the Broad Foundation, earning the district a million dollars in student scholarships and its controversial superintendent validation of his strong leadership style."
This award comes with a very nice monetary prize -- A million bucks!
I think DeKalb should keep in mind all of the things Gwinnett is doing to have earned such an honor and to focus very hard on finding a superintendent who could lead our system to this kind of recognition!
Good for you Gwinnett! I pray that our leaders in DeKalb see this as a blueprint for them to follow.
