In this edition of the Ed Next Book Club, Andy Smarick explains to host Mike Petrilli that to make urban schools work, a shift must be made from having districts run schools to letting schools lead the charge in innovation. Smarick tackles this issue and more in his new book, The Urban School System of the Future.

Mike McShane reviewed the book for Ed Next here.
