For the sixth consecutive year, GSE assembled administrators representing schools around New York state for its Annual Leadership Conference, held March 13 at the Lincoln Center campus. Keynote speaker John B. King, Jr., Ph.D., Commissioner of Education for the New York State Department of Education, emphasized the importance of teachers and administrators working in concert to improve student outcomes.
“The good news is that in New York state we’ve seen a steady increase in high school graduation rates,” said King, who taught high school history in Puerto Rico and Boston before moving into administrative roles. “That’s something we should all be proud of and encouraged by. It matters that more of our adults have high school degrees… At the same time, we know we have work to do.”
