Michael Casserly - Executive Director, Council of the Great City Schools "I always worry about people being set up as saviors and then later on being crucified when they fall from grace." Michael Casserly When Michael Casserly learned that Michelle Rhee had accepted the position of Chancellor of the DC Schools, he was surprised - but not for the reason you might think. Casserly served on the board of Rhee's non-profit, The New Teacher Project, and knew that she knew how challenging the job would be. "She's got to raise the academic performance of the kids in the school system; she's got to clean up the finance system and close the internal control problems. She's got to help fix the buildings; she's got to overhaul the personnel and Human Resource system of the school district. She's got to help recapture and regain the public's confidence in the public schools," Casserly told us with a gleam in his eye. "So, other than that, it ought to be a cakewalk."

Casserly is well versed in the challenges of running large urban school systems. For over 30 years, he's worked at the Council of the Great City Schools - a coalition of the nation's 66 largest urban public school systems which aims to promote urban education through legislation, research, and the media.

asked Michael Casserly, the executive director of the Council of the Great City Schools, an organization that represents about 70 large urban school districts.

"Because so many actors are adopting and requiring tests, you often find a whole portfolio of tests not being very strategic," said Mr. Casserly, the council's executive director. "It's often disjointed and disconnected and incoherent in many ways, and it results in a fair amount of redundancy and overlap."
Still, he said: "We don't think tests are the enemy.
