Green Dot Public Schools
In communities across the country, there are schools whose performance has consistently lagged behind others—and are harming students, mostly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. We have taken on the challenge of leading several persistently low-performing high schools in urban communities in Memphis and South LA. Hear about the opportunities and challenges that face transformation schools, how devoted educators are rethinking school-wide interventions, and factors that are the keys to success.
