“Public school leaders—if we don’t get into the concept that we have to be responsive to our communities and responsive to the needs of children, someone else is going to do it for us.”

A stark warning from former AASA National Superintendent of the Year and TrustED columnist Dr. Philip Lanoue, but one many school leaders are beginning to embrace.

In the latest TrustED podcast, I talk with Dr. Lanoue about how districts can adapt to an increasingly market-driven K-12 landscape—and why communication and customer service are so important to their evolving mission.

We also take a look at new research that examines how students and parents choose schools and what that means for districts in the face of increased competition and declining enrollments.
