This month we talk to John Carver, Superintendent of the Howard-Winneshiek Community School District in Northeast Iowa and participant in the first-ever National Connected Superintendents Summit at the White House in November 2014. This was an exciting interview! After all, how often do I get to glean insights from one of the top superintendents in the country? It only took this 15 minute conversation for me to hang up and reflect, 'How are we getting it so wrong everywhere else when they are getting is so right in Iowa?!'
