La Cañada’s young school reformer

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/los_angeles/article/la_canadas_young_school_reformer_20120111

It’s easy to conjure up images of the folks pushing education reform in districts where students are obviously struggling. Think of Michelle Rhee, the former chancellor of the embattled public schools in Washington, D.C., who instituted reforms like variable pay for teachers based upon student achievement. Or consider Steve Barr, who founded the Green Dot group of public charter schools in response to the low graduation rate in the Los Angeles Unified School District.
