St. Louis Public Schools (SLPS) faces a crisis: plummeting enrollment has caused the district to lose roughly 90,000 students since the 1970s. SLPS has responded to this crisis by closing and consolidating schools. They are not alone – this is happening all over the country. The National Council of Jewish Women St. Louis is excited to welcome Dr. Howard Fields for our July Lunch and Learn. Dr. Fields is the 2020 National Elementary Distinguished Principal from Missouri. Described as a passionate and courageous leader, Dr. Fields started his career in urban education, serving as a coach, teacher, assistant principal, and principal. Currently, Dr. Fields serves in the capacity of Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources in the Kirkwood School District where he led the charge to adopt two equity policies as well as spearheading efforts to revamp the interview process to focus more on equity, diversity, antibias, and antiracism.
