In this extended interview with Clarence Page, life-long educator Rudy Crew, superintendent of Miami-Dade County Public Schools, talks about his plans to include entrepreneurship education as part of his secondary school reform policy.
Dr. Crew became Superintendent of Miami-Dade County Public Schools on July 1, 2004, following a nationwide search by the nation’s fourth-largest school district. Dr. Crew’s career has spanned from the classroom to the chancellorship of the nation’s largest school district, New York City Public Schools, where he served from 1995-1999. He began his administrative career as principal of San Antonio High School in Claremont, California. Along his way to Miami, his career took him to Boston, Sacramento and Washington State.
Young people actually want to find a way by which they can be a contributor, not only to their own lives, and the lives of their families, but to the larger economy.
