A Conversation with Peter Raskind The interim CEO of Cleveland's schools is no passive caretaker. Peter Raskind sees himself more as a problem solver. And the problems are immense. Raskind, the former National City Bank CEO, is making tough choices at the helm of the troubled district: He wants to lay off 13 percent of the workforce, close seven schools and push for a tax levy. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll spend an hour with Raskind. Join the conversation Wednesday at 9 on 90.3.



Peter Raskind, Interim CEO, Cleveland Metropolitan School District
