In its latest effort at turning around one of the nation’s most troubled public school districts, Los Angeles Unified has turned to Alberto Carvalho, who has earned a reputation as an innovative education leader.
Carvalho is currently the leader of Miami-Dade Public Schools, which is the nation’s fourth-largest K-12 system. He is credited for quickly transforming Miami-Dade from a struggling district into one in which students thrive.
Notable to many is that Carvalho can relate to the challenges facing many children from impoverished families.
“Education turned a once homeless kid into me,” Carvalho says in his Twitter bio.
$440K a Year Contract
The LA Unified school board unanimously hired Carvalho, rewarding him with a four-year contract at a base salary of $440,000 per year. That’s $90,000 a year more than his predecessor made.
