Superintendent to Hold Book Club Event on May 21

April 5, 2013
Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Joshua Starr will host his second Book Club discussion of the school year on Tuesday, May 21, at 7 p.m., in the auditorium of the Carver Educational Services Center, 850 Hungerford Drive in Rockville.

The book club will discuss
Cage-Busting Leadership by Frederick M. Hess, who will join Dr. Starr for the event. Parents, staff, students and community members who wish to be a part of the studio audience for this free event are asked to RSVP to

Dr. Starr began the book clubs in 2011 as a way to engage the MCPS community, staff and students in a conversation about education and the skills our students need to be successful. More than 400 people have participated in the book club events both in the live audiences and online.

“Rick Hess’ book speaks directly to the importance of strong leadership in improving teaching and learning,” said Dr. Starr. “I look forward to a robust, engaging conversation with our community.”

On the day of the event, Dr. Starr will be joined by Dr. Hess and other guests who will discuss the book and take questions and comments from the live audience. Those watching
online or on MCPS TV (Comcast Channel 34) can participate in the conversation by sending questions via Twitter (using the hashtag #mcpsbookclub) and email.
