As Election Day approaches in the Maryland, a candidate for Montgomery County Executive and one for Governor of Maryland join us for the Politics Hour.
When Suzanne Maxey took the helm of Alexandria’s only public high school, it was an institution in crisis. The city’s historic T.C. Williams High School had been targeted by the government as “persistently lowest achieving.” The school had frequent turnover at the top. And its nearly 3,000 students had flagging test scores, a higher-than-average drop-out rate and behavior problems. Five years and one massive overhaul later, Maxey is leaving T.C. Williams a much-changed place. She reflects on tackling reform at one of Virginia’s largest high schools and the lessons she’s learned after more than four decades in education.
