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.

Trump is expected to appoint the Secretary of Education soon, but Casserly, of Council of Great City Schools, says it's still early in the transition process. "Frankly, at this point, it's probably not worth a whole lot of time trying to speculate which person it might be," Casserly says.

Taking stock of student testing amid changes nationwide | EdSource

Michael Casserly of the Council of Great City Schools shared the results of a unique "inventory" report his organization conducted that sheds light on these and other questions.
"Probably the thing of greatest interest was the amount of time required to take the tests," Casserly said during the EWA panel on testing. On average, he said, the assessments take up about 4.2 days in a 180-day school year, or 2.3 percent of school time. "There was no correlation between the amount of testing time and whether kids did any better in reading and math," Casserly noted. The report found many tests are redundant and are not aligned with standards or with each other, he said. In addition, results are often not reported soon enough to inform instruction. "By the time test results get back to teachers in the classroom," Casserly said, "it's old news and they can't really do anything about it." Casserly of the Council of the Great City Schools agreed, saying many states lost valuable data about the effectiveness of School Improvement Grants when they switched tests.
