UW–Madison alumnus Charles Urness, who is the superintendent of the School District of Jefferson, was featured in a Q&A with the Daily Jefferson County Union.
Urness earned a master of science in educational administration from the School of Education in 2001, and a PhD in educational leadership and policy analysis in 2012.
In the Q&A, Urness talks about his experience teaching, favorite tv shows, and more.
When asked how students have — or haven’t — changed over the course of his career, Urness replies, “I think students are essentially the same. However, the societal stresses and influences on them have changed significantly over time. For example, I cannot imagine an adolescent version of me with a cell phone and access to social media. We expect kids to act responsibly with technology that not all adults can handle well.”
