During American Education Week (Nov. 14–20), 31 Gwinnett schools hosted business leaders for the inaugural Principal for a Day initiative, cosponsored by Gwinnett County Public Schools and the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce. “Our goal was to provide CEO-level business leaders with a day-long, personal, authentic look at the operations of today’s schools,” said CEO/Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks. “They experienced up close the rewards, challenges, and satisfaction that come with being the instructional and managerial leader of a modern public school.”
