Prof. Carl Cohn, director of the Urban Leadership Program in Claremont Graduate University's School of Educational Studies, will be the speaker at the University of Michigan School of Education's 2013 commencement celebration.
Cohn, a member of California's State Board of Education, is one of the country's top educational thinkers. He has served in a variety of educational roles, including teacher, counselor, professor, superintendent, and federal court monitor.
From 1992 to 2002, he was the superintendent of the Long Beach Unified School District, helping the district to become a model for high academic standards and accountability. During his tenure, the district achieved record attendance, the lowest rate of suspension in a decade, decreases in student failure and dropout rates, and an increase in the number of students taking college preparatory classes.
He won the McGraw Prize in 2002, and the district won the Broad Prize in 2003.
The University of Michigan School of Education's commencement ceremony is scheduled for May 4.
