For nearly 10 years, Cami Anderson served as a superintendent of schools. First, she oversaw alternative high schools and programs serving 90,000 young adults in New York City, including students attending school while serving one-year suspensions and while incarcerated. She then supported 45,000 pre-K-12 students in Newark, N.J., where changing the approach to discipline was a hallmark of her tenure. As the former executive director of Teach For America and the chief program officer of New Leaders for New Schools and the current chief-in-residence at Chiefs for Change, she’s dedicated to coaching and supporting leaders at all levels of school reform. She’s the co-founder of ROADS, a network of charter high schools dedicated to court-involved youth and was recognized by Time magazine as one of the world’s 100 most influential people. In 2015, Anderson founded ThirdWay Solutions to spark and support fundamental change in helping organizations dedicated to equity find new solutions to their most difficult challenges. The Discipline Revolution Project is core to the work of ThirdWay, and Anderson is committed to the success of DRP partners.
