Rudy Crew is in the first week of his new job. And his job is also a first for Oregon. Last month, Governor John Kitzhaber named Crew to be the state’s first chief education officer.
Crew is in charge of re-shaping Oregon’s education system from pre-school through college — a system you’ll hear him refer to as “P - 20”. A former head of New York City schools, he was a guest on OPB’s Think Out Loud this morning.
Host Dave Miller asked him how Oregonians should grade his performance.
