Welcome to my blog!

Thanks for stopping by.

On one of my first days on the job in 2009, I recall a parent imploring me to “please take risks for kids.” I had just come on board as Superintendent of Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD), one of the top 1% of largest school districts in the country and one of the most impoverished and ethnically diverse. During my 4.5-year tenure, those were words I vowed to live by.

Founder of JPR: Taking Risks for Kids and author of “Wildflowers: A School Superintendent’s Challenge to America”.

If you’ve been working to implement whole child education, I’d love to hear from you — your successes, and your challenges.
