The Education Trust in Louisiana to hold Transformative Leadership event


The Education Trust in Louisiana will host the event “Transformative Leadership: What School Leaders Can Do to Close Equity Gaps” on Thursday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at The Water Campus, located at 1110 S. River Road in Baton Rouge.

The keynote speaker will be John B. King Jr., the CEO of The Education Trust who formerly served as the U.S. Secretary of Education.

The East Baton Rouge Parish School System is searching for a new superintendent, so King will lead a discussion with local officials, educators and advocates on the characteristics of a transformative leader, what the public should expect from a strong school superintendent and strategies school leaders can employ to gain access to high-quality seats for all children, particularly Black and Latino students, according to The Education Trust.
