Charting a New Course for NPS
Over a year ago, Norfolk Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Samuel King was hired to revitalize a division that was once seen as a model of urban education but has experienced a sharp downturn in student performance.  A newly revealed component of his plans to revitalize Norfolk's public schools involves the conversion of 10 of the district's 46 schools into public charters with focused themes that would change both the school calendar and the way curriculums are taught.  Cathy Lewis speaks with leadership from Norfolk Public Schools about the bold plan to change the way Norfolk students learn.

Scheduled Guests:
