Michael Casserly Council of the Great City Schools
Dr. Michael Casserly has served as Executive Director of the Council of the Great City Schools since January 1992. Casserly also served as the organization's Director of Legislation and Research for 15 years before assuming his current position. As head of the Council Casserly unified big city schools nationwide around a vision of reform and improvement; launched an aggressive research program on trends in urban education; convened the first Education Summit of Big City Mayors and Superintendents; and led the nation's largest urban school districts to volunteer for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). He also led the first national study of common practices among the nation's fastest improving urban school districts, and launched national task forces on achievement gaps, leadership and governance, finance, professional development, and bilingual education. He is considered by many to be one of Washington's best education advocates and lobbyists, and an expert on urban education, governance, finance, and federal legislation and policy. Washington Almanac listed Casserly as one of Washington D.C.'s 400 most powerful individuals, and USA Today calls Casserly a "crusader" for city schoolchildren. Casserly has appeared on numerous television and radio shows, including the "Julian Bond Show," "All Things Considered," and "Larry King Live". He is currently spearheading efforts to boost academic performance in the nation's big city schools, strengthening management and operations, challenging inequitable state financing systems, and improving the public's image of urban education. He is a U.S. Army veteran, and holds a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland.

But Michael Casserly, executive director of the Council of the Great City Schools, said the results should not be seen as an endorsement of any particular ideology.
"I think what it's an endorsement of is more rigorous and more high-quality instruction in urban classrooms," he said.
But close analysis of the data shows that changing demographics have little to do with the increases, Casserly said.
