After 15 years of service to Cleveland families--the last eleven as the CEO of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District--Eric Gordon will step down at the end of the year. As he has demonstrated in his annual State of the Schools addresses, his tenure has been marked by achievement and accomplishment in the face of and in spite of significant challenges. Graduation rates have improved 29 percentage points to over 80 percent in recent years. College enrollment rates have also improved significantly.
As our community prepares to select a successor at the helm of the Cleveland schools, CEO Gordon will sit down with The Honorable Justin M. Bibb, the 58th Mayor of Cleveland, for a conversation about leadership, their shared hopes for Cleveland's children, and the work ahead for the next leader to take the baton.
The livestream will be available beginning at 12:00pm. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.
