Host: Mike Stenhouse Time: 60 minutes
Newly appointed Commissioner Infante-Green has been given a Herculean task—the renovation of RI Education. An even greater task is her most immediate charge—to resuscitate the Providence school system. The latter was the major focus of the discussion. The Commissioner listed what needs to be addressed immediately and all at once. She predicts quick improvement in certain areas but some matters will take longer. Host Stenhouse questioned what can be done immediately as the process may outlive students currently enrolled. A discussion of immediate and innovative remedies followed.
