Dr. John Marshall, Chief Equity Officer for Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS), has been named a 2017 ‘Leader to Learn From’ by Education Week. A profile highlighting his contributions to JCPS appears in the publication’s annual special report spotlighting innovative school district leaders around the nation.
Marshall was selected by Education Week editors from a pool of hundreds of nominees submitted by readers, staff reporters and other education writers, state school administrator groups and experts in the K-12 field.
“I’m incredibly humbled and grateful to be recognized by Education Week,” Dr. Marshall said. “This recognition is really a reflection of the tremendous work undertaken by my entire department to continually promote diversity and equity in our school system, and I’m very proud to accept it on their behalf.”
He will be recognized at a special ‘Leaders to Learn From’ event at the end of March in Washington, D.C.
