After an extended and controversial search for the new chancellor of DCPS, Mayor Muriel Bowser picked Antwan Wilson, the former head of Oakland, Calif.’s public schools. Wilson left Oakland mid-year to come to Washington, D.C. and he inherits a system struggling to overcome a stubborn academic achievement gap at a time when the debate over school choice is raging. A month after his first day on the job, Kojo chats with the new DCPS Chancellor about the challenges and opportunities ahead for the city’s public schools.
