Named the City of Little Rock’s first Chief Education Officer in December, Jay Barth brings a wealth of experience from his time as a professor of politics at Hendrix College and the former chairman/member of the state Board of Education.
As the COVID-19 outbreak has led to statewide cancellations through April 17, Barth remains committed to making Little Rock’s schools the best they can be when classes resume while also working with partners to ensure students receive the education and care they need during this difficult time.
Barth joined host Natalie Ghidotti on the latest episode of The Ghidotti Podcast (being recorded via Zoom during COVID-19 precautions) to share more about how schools are handling operations during the coronavirus outbreak, as well as the ongoing plans for a new community school model in the capital city.
