Art Johnson

It seems like only yesterday that Palm Beach County School Superintendent Art Johnson was riding high in his position overseeing one of the state's largest school districts. Now Johnson is fending off criticism from parents and teachers who believe he has moved too aggressively, and in some cases recklessly, to improve academic standards in the district. In the face of organized protests, Johnson backed off, but the superintendent still faces some big changes emanating from Washington and Tallahassee that may force his hand to make further changes -- protests or no. 2010 promises to be a challenging year, for the district and its superintendent.
