St. Louis, MO – After six years at the helm of Missouri's largest school district, Dr. Cleveland Hammonds is calling it quits. Hammonds announced Wednesday he'll retire as superintendent at the end of the school year. His term saw some improvements in student test scores, the end of a long-standing desegregation case against the district and an ambitious building program. Hammonds says one of his toughest issues was finding the resources to pay teachers what they're worth.
