Mind Trust hires controversial superintendent

H. Douglas Williams, the Perry Township School superintendent who accepted a buyout early this month in a high-profile clash with the board, has joined The Mind Trust, a downtown not-for-profit that supports entrepreneurs in the field of education.

Williams, who started July 23, will develop alternatives to traditional high schools in an effort to curb dropouts.

Mind Trust was started last year by David Harris, the former charter schools director. The largest funding source is Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation.
