Dr. Pia Durkin, Superintendent, New Bedford Public Schools (MA), The District Management Journal, Spring 2016 (Commentary, 9 pages, PDF)

Durkin shares how she tackled the many challenges before her, weathered a vote of "no confidence" from the New Bedford Educators Association, and changed the course in New Bedford by cultivating stakeholder support, building leadership capacity, bringing laser-focus on high-quality instruction through measurement and accountability, and changing the culture of the district to one that is focused on student needs.
