Red Clay schools chief talks budget, equity panel, achievement gap [video]

The start of the school year brings renewed dreams for students and a host of challenges for educators.

To discuss some of the issues in Delaware K-12 education today, the superintendent of the Red Red Clay Consolidated School District joined us on “First.”

Merv Daughter spoke with WHYY education reporter Cris Barrish about budget cuts imposed by Gov. John Carney and the General Assembly, the achievement gap between low-income students and those of means, a racial equity committee created in August by the Red Clay board, and innovations by his district to keep students in this era of choice and charter schools.
