Episode first aired on 4/12/2012

Since the mid-1990's from Boston to Sacramento, local cities and schools have redefined their relationship. In some cities, such as Chicago and New York, mayors have statutorily controlled administrative policies of schools. In other cities, team building between the city and the school district was established.

At this press conference, Mayor Soglin discusses the development of a team building process between the City of Madison, the Madison Metropolitan School District and the private sector.
