Dr. Errick Greene has been superintendent of the Jackson Public School district for less than a year. He previously served as the Chief of Schools of Tulsa Public Schools in Oklahoma.
Dr. Greene has a doctoral degree in Educational and Organizational Leadership from the University of Pennsylvania; two master’s degrees in Education — one from Trinity University and another from Howard University; and a bachelor’s degree in political science from Howard University.
JPS recently released its strategic plan for improving the grades they receive as a district and working to improve the quality of education provided to what Dr. Greene calls “scholars,” and to avoid a state takeover. He spoke with JFP Editor-in-Chief Donna Ladd about the district’s new strategic plan, including for “joyful learning” and a new dedication to “excellence.”
