Nearly 100 community leaders serve as "Principal For A Day"

They all have difficult jobs, but today they got a glimpse of a different leadership role: being a BPS principal or headmaster. Nearly 100 CEOs and other business and civic leaders spent the morning shadowing city school leaders in the 4th annual Principal For A Day program sponsored by BPS and the Boston Plan for Excellence, with support from Bank of America. Pictured here, Paul La Camera, General Manager of WBUR, observes a science experiment at the Umana/Barnes Middle School in East Boston.

I was blown away by our meeting today! Congratulations for the great job that you have done at the school. I am so impressed with what you have done for your community and for your kids, just fantastic. It was a real eye opener for me. We had a good discussion today. Let me know what more I can do. In particular, I am looking forward to you apply for a Facing History Award.

All the best,
