What Leigh McGuigan really cares about, she says, is “fundamentally changing urban education... making it work for kids.” McGuigan no longer works in Cleveland. The former Director of Innovative Schools for the Cleveland Metropolitan School District abruptly left that foundation-funded post this Spring, after she and schools CEO Eugene Sanders agreed she was “not a good fit.” Tuesday morning at 9, McGuigan joins us to talk about the challenges facing urban school districts across the country and what she sees as the most effective solutions.
