Carol Johnson is cramming for Boston. The city's newly-selected Schools Superintendent is spending the rest of the week here meeting with education officials, community leaders, and parents in preparation for assuming office.

The Boston School Committee is scheduled to vote on her contract next week but she's expected to start by September.

Mayor Tom Menino formally introduced Johnson at a City Hall press conference yesterday. This morning, she joins WBUR's Bob Oakes for a conversation about her plans for Hub schools.

This program aired on June 20, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
