School Supt. Finalists Meet Public, Board Decision Expected Soon


One of the finalists to be the next Springfield school superintendent says it would be foolish to ignore issues of race in helping children cope with the challenges they face.

 

Michael Popp says he tried to be “colorblind” early in his career, but came to realize that the experiences of one group of students is not the same as those of another… and says that reality cannot be ignored as school districts try to close the achievement gap.

 

Both Popp and the other finalist, Jennifer Gill, spoke to a community meeting Wednesday night… and both said they would try to boost minority hiring in the district, but acknowledged it could be a difficult and long-range process.

 

The school board could announce its choice for superintendent in the next few days.
