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.
