On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Superintendent Jack Smith is halfway through his first year in charge of Maryland’s largest school system. He began the job with plans to address the achievement gap –which he called a “moral imperative”– and is now contending with a number of other issues including school start times, the budget plan and school lunch. Kojo sits down with Smith to discuss his progress running MCPS so far and the challenges ahead.
