New Schools for Baton Rouge’s third Education Ecosystem Summit is an opportunity for the Baton Rouge community to join together on behalf of our city’s children. Together–parents, community leaders, and heads of nonprofits and local businesses–will articulate a vision for Baton Rouge education, celebrate the progress made, and recommit to the work ongoing. We will collaborate around solutions to priority challenges in the short term and surface challenges to solve for over the long term. By coming together, we ensure that the solutions we put in place now and in the future are responsive to the needs of students and families.

Kenneth is a founding board member of the Black Alliance for Educational Options (BAEO), and served as BAEO's president from 2010-2015. BAEO is an education reform advocacy organization founded to increase access to high-quality educational options for Black children by actively supporting transformational education reform initiatives and parental choice policies that empower low-income and working-class Black families. As a retired Army Reserve captain, Campbell began his career in education reform by helping to secure passage of Washington, D.C.'s landmark charter school law. He later founded the D.C. Charter School Resource Center, served as vice-president of business development for the nation's second-largest education management company, and helped develop schools in Qatar, as part of the most progressive education reform effort in the Middle East. He is a founding board member of 4.0 Schools, which brings educators and entrepreneurs together to launch ventures that redefine schooling, and Building Excellent Schools, which supports education entrepreneurs in creating and maintaining excellent schools in underserved communities. Prior to assuming his role as president of BAEO, Campbell was the founding director of charter schools at the Louisiana Department of Education. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, he helped engineer the rebuilding of New Orleans's educational ecosystem and accelerated the growth of high-performing charter schools across the state. Campbell holds a bachelor's degree in business administration and a master's in educational leadership. He lives in Louisiana with his wife and son.
