On July 20, 2010, the Brookings Institution posted a study by Grover J. Whitehurst and Michelle Croft, “The Harlem Children’s Zone, Promise Neighborhoods, and the Broader, Bolder Approach to Education.”
Richard R. Buery, Jr., The Children’s Aid Society’s President and CEO, offers this reaction to the report.
When I announced my retirement earlier this year, I had one main suggestion for the committee looking for my replacement: Find someone who's "angry."
"Angry?" they said. "What do you mean?"
The Children's Aid Society is excited to announce the appointment of Richard R. Buery, Jr. as our new President and Chief Executive Officer. He will succeed C. Warren "Pete" Moses, who will retire after our annual meeting in October. Buery, 37, will be the organization's first African-American leader.
