MHS Author in the News: Bill Green

Filed under: MHS Author in the News — Mary Poggione @ 9:02 am

phpZN2hzfBill Green, author of A Peculiar Imbalance: the Fall and Rise of Racial Equality in Early Minnesota has recently announced that he will not seek to renew his contract as superintendent of Minneapolis Public Schools so that he can return to writing and teaching.

Per MinnPost:

“The popular, affable Green, who has been on leave from his post as a tenured professor at Augsburg College, will hand his successor a very different district from the one he inherited. It’s dramatically smaller, more cash-strapped than ever, and still facing a yawning achievement gap. But for the first time in more than a decade, MPS’ various stakeholder groups are not at war with one another.”
