Dare to Lead Boldly
What does it take to help prepare students for life beyond the classroom? As you’ll hear in today’s episode, our guest Dr. Mark Martin, Superintendent of Meade County Schools in Brandenburg, Kentucky, shows us the great impact that can be made by dreaming big and thinking outside the box. His bold and innovative leadership is a model for us all. Listen as he discusses with Dr. Janet Pilcher a program he’s launched called Close the Gap Kentucky and how it’s helping other school districts succeed.
