  • Teresa Weatherall-Neal, Superintendent, Grand Rapids Public Schools

I’m joined by Grand Rapids Public Schools Superintendent Teresa Weatherall-Neal. We chat about what ignited her passion for public education and working with children, some of the teachers that inspired her, where things stand and what’s on the table for the GRPS restructuring plan, how long before first school would close and savings would begin to be realized, measuring sticks to track the progress of the plan, what will become of the closed schools, what happens if the school board votes the plan down, the effect it will have on high school sports, additional things GRPS is looking to do to stay competitive, what the “fiscal cliff”could mean for Title I money, where she sees GRPS in 5-10 years, what could happen if the plan doesn’t work, and more…..
