Former schools leader Paul Vallas details his approach to reform failing schools

Former Chicago Public Schools CEO Paul Vallas has been known for turning around failing schools, but are his methods effective? In addition to Chicago, he has served in education roles in New Orleans and Philadelphia, and is now in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Vallas speaks at Elmhurst College Thursday to explain what tactics he employed in those cities to try to reform troubled schools. He gives us a preview of that talk. Photo: Flickr/alamosbasement
