      Providence public school children deserve the skills and knowledge of a first-rate, collaborative educator like Dr. Lusi. I believe she will provide the long-term focus needed to address acheivement imbalances that have cropped up from the layers of short-term approaches attempted for too many years now.

      Dr. Lusi knows the PPSD needs and has worked hard, listening to parents and staff, and making decisions. She has the wheels in motion for improving our schools!

      It is very clear that our school system cannot withstand the continual 3 year pendulum swing from one superintendent to another. Dr. Lusi knows the system, has been able to build a rapprochement with the teacher's union after last year's mass firing, and clearly listens. We need some consistency and an opportunity to build on the positive footing put in place by her predecessors.

      Dr.Lusi is the first superintendent who has listened to teachers and parents in a long time. This won't be a pit-stop for her.She's in it for the long haul, long enough to really make change.
