Principal for Day

Today I am participating in the Principal for a Day program sponsored by the L.A. Area Chamber of Commerce and the Los Angeles Unified School District. It's been a great experience to see first-hand the many challenges of running an urban public school. I've talked to administrators, teachers, staff, and students.

Many things have changed since I was a student at a Los Angeles public school in the 80s, but certain things - like the dedication of some great educators - have not.

We still have a long way to go to make sure every student has the resources they need for success, and I am as committed as ever to helping to make that happen.
