"The finalists have attained a level of achievement more typically seen in schools that serve very affluent communities," said Joseph F. Johnson, Jr., Executive Director of NCUST. "They've demonstrated evidence of effectiveness among all of the student populations they serve, including English learners and students with disabilities. They prove that our nation's urban schools can be wonderful centers of learning that change children's lives," Johnson said.

I wanted to get to the heart of what makes urban schools successful, so I sought out to interview one of the top thought leaders on urban schools, Dr. Joe Johnson of the National Center for Urban School Transformation. With the annual NCUST conference coming May 22, and a new book from Johnson, along with Lynne G. Perez and Cynthia L. Uline, Teaching Practices from America's Best Urban Schools, I took the opportunity to catch up with Johnson and ask him some questions about the Center and its work with urban schools.

In 2005, when SDSU received an endowment from Qualcomm, Inc. to create a center to focus on urban education, they wisely turned to Dr. Joseph Johnson, who became the founding executive director of the National Center for Urban School Transformation and has led that team for seven years.
I am a longtime fan of Johnson, having met him when he was working with Dr. Uri Treisman (MacArthur Genius winner and former AVID Center board member) at the Charles A. Dana Center at the University of Texas in Austin, doing great work with schools and districts in Texas and beyond. We used Johnson's reports-quantitative and qualitative data - with AVID sites and districts in our Summer Institutes to reinforce the idea that poor students have assets and are not prisoners of their environments, and that urban schools and districts can be places of tremendous learning and advancement.
Since Johnson opened NCUST, I have attended his conferences and always look forward to the recognition that the Center bestows on urban schools across the nation. Since 2006, NCUST has recognized more than 60 schools in 40 districts for "Excellence in Urban Education. The reports describing the work of the recognized schools are informative and inspiring.
