Percy Clark Jr., Still Reaching for Hearts and Minds
Goldman, Jay P.
School Administrator, v62 n6 p51 Jun 2005
The most telling experience in Percy Clark's 41 years as a professional educator may well have been the first--a raw rookie thrown into a classroom of 30-plus 7th graders who, in the teacher's most charitable depiction, "just didn't fit in anywhere." In the years since, Clark has served in various settings with differing needs--as a 27-year-old principal in Kalamazoo, Michigan; an assistant superintendent in upper-middle-class Shaker Heights, Ohio; a superintendent in Lawrence Township outside Indianapolis, Indiana; a vice president with the Edison Schools; and since 2001 the superintendent in Pasadena, California, a city trying to overcome lingering racial wounds. This article briefly discusses the profile of Percy Clark, Jr. and the work he has done as a superintendent and educator.
