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.

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.

Yet Michael Casserly, executive director of the Council of Great City Schools, the consortium of the nation's 70 largest urban school districts behind the (latest) analysis, insists Pittsburgh's schools are "not broken" and have the ability to "rebound over the next several years."

And in a gigunda rationalization, Casserly says past district leaders should be held harmless for this stellar underperformance.
