Today, it is my pleasure to bring you Sue Szachowicz, a retired principal of Brockton High School and now a Senior Fellow for the International Center for Leadership in Education.
She chronicled the turn-around of Brockton High in her book Transforming Brockton High: High Standards, High Expectations, No Excuses,and this week she is on the show to discuss exactly how she, and her team, did it.
I can’t say enough positive things about this episode and Sue. Sue is a no nonsense educator. Excuses are cheap. Effort is king. Science is superior.
It isn’t enough to want to change a school, you have to believe there is no other option…even if there are toxic people who resist getting better, and resist making the school better.
Don’t miss this one.
Share and enjoy!
