News from MCDPEL

This groundbreaking volume encourages today’s educational leaders to reposition the way they think about leadership and its challenges. Experienced school and district leaders reveal how they conceptualize their roles; how they learn by posing and solving problems of practice; and how they cope with increasing expectations and complexity in their work.

The Jackson, MS School Board recently named Mid-Career alum Errick Greene as their next Superintendent. WAPT News Jackson reported: “Dr. Greene comes to Jackson Public School District with a wealth of experience providing leadership on some of the most challenging urban education reform assignments in the United States over the last decade” said Dr. Jeanne M. Hairston, President of the Jackson Public School Board of Trustees.

Mid-Career alum Stephen Bournes presented his research at the 2018 National NABSE Conference in Baltimore, MD. Mr. Bournes’s topic was Transforming the Underperforming: Principal Perceptions of Support in Turnaround Schools.
