Getting Into Good Trouble at School

Jamie and Jerri interview Alexandria City Public Schools Superintendent Gregory Hutchings, Jr. and Georgetown professor Douglas Reed about the new book they are releasing soon titled, Getting Into Good Trouble at School: A Guide to Building an Antiracist School System. Hutchings and Reed discuss the six steps to creating an antiracist school system in this podcast. This provocative and eye-opening discussion helps listeners understand how school systems and policies have led to discrimination by sharing clear examples of discriminatory policies. Hutchings and Reed believe that racism is not always intentional, but anti-racism must be; getting into good trouble is the way forward. Begin questioning and changing institutional practices so that all students find success by listening to this podcast.



Dr. Gregory C. Hutchings, Jr. returned to Alexandria in July 2018 to serve as superintendent of Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS). Before this role, he served as a teacher, assistant principal, and middle school principal before becoming superintendent of Shaker Heights Schools in Cleveland, Ohio, in 2013. In 2009, he was named Tennessee Middle School Principal of the Year. In 2018, he was selected for the National Superintendent of the Year Award by the National Alliance of Black School Educators. He is a recent co-author of the book, Getting Into Good Trouble: A Guide to Becoming An Antiracist School System. Dr. Hutchings holds a doctorate in educational policy, planning, and leadership from the College of William and Mary. Dr. Hutchings is also a proud graduate of T.C. Williams High School at ACPS.

Doug Reed's teaching and research interests center on educational politics and policymaking, American political development, and American constitutional law. He recently wrote Building the Federal Schoolhouse: Localism and the American Education State (Oxford University Press, 2014). The book examines how changes in the federal role in public education have reshaped local politics and how, jointly, federal, state, and local actors have constructed the American education state over the past 50 years. "Politics of Proficiency: Common Core and the Inequalities of American Education." is the title of his second book.

Dr. Reed is the co-founder and director of the Program on Education, Inquiry, and Justice at Georgetown. This recently-created program views education and the teaching arts as a central element of the liberal arts. Doug Reed received a Spencer Foundation Post-Doctoral Fellowship from the National Academy of Education and was named a Carnegie Scholar by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.

Getting Into Good Trouble at School: A Guide to Building an Antiracist School System is expected to release in mid-June 2022 and can be pre-ordered here.
