On June 1, 2023, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) named F. Mike Miles as the new superintendent for the Houston Independent School District.
For the full hour, Superintendent Miles joins us to discuss his role as the newly-appointed leader of HISD, as well as his plans for improving the school district amidst the concerns following the TEA's takeover of the district.
Miles explains his approach to enact systemic change within HISD, including his "New Education System" initiative which requires staff to reapply for their jobs, as well as puts focus on the highest-need schools first to evaluate and recruit exceptional principals and teachers, among other changes.
Plus, Superintendent Miles takes listeners' calls to answer their questions and comments about his goals for HISD going forward.
