In this half-hour discussion with attendees at Education Week’s Leaders To Learn From event in Washington, Janice K. Jackson, discusses her work to support principals and build community trust as CEO of Chicago Public Schools. At the event, Jackson was recognized as an exceptional school district administrator for her leadership in supporting urban schools.
