Robin Appleby, current head of the Global Education Management Systems American Academies, has been appointed director of the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools.

“We were looking for someone who has a deep respect for Lab’s progressive tradition, and who also has the leadership and vision necessary to guide the Schools as we grapple with the idea of what ‘progressive’ means in the 21st century,” said Janice Moy, a sixth-grade teacher who served on the committee that selected Appleby.
