I was recently interviewed by a team of high school students from St. John’s School who were interested in examining the question of how to improve public education at the high school level.  They interviewed Mike Feinberg, co-founder of KIPP charter schools, an administrator at the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (part of the HISD), Justin Fuentes, Principal of HISD’s Challenge Early College High School, Philip Cannon, former Headmaster of St John’s School, and myself.

They published their interviews on their blog and I highly recommend it.  Kudos to George Bailey, Joey Cowan and Zach Long for their work on this important subject.

About Harvin Moore

Harvin C. Moore has volunteered in public education since 1989 when he began tutoring in New York City's East Harlem Tutorial Program, and later in Houston with Communities in Schools. Harvin joined the original board of the KIPP Academy in 1996 and served as Treasurer and Vice Chairman as it began its national expansion. From a desire to broaden the effect of education reform to more children who desperately need it, he ran for and was elected to the Houston Independent School District Board of Education in 2003, where he has served for three terms and as President in 2008. Harvin is an executive in the aerospace industry, where he first worked as a college intern on the launch crew of the first privately funded rocket to reach outer space in 1982. He contends that school reform is not rocket science. He also contends they are both hard work. Harvin publishes The Transformation Times, a blog centered on public education reform issues, at, and tweets @harvinmoore.
