Caire, who earned his undergraduate degree from the School of Education in 2000, is a national leader in K-12 education reform, economic and workforce development, and community transformation.

Caire's One City Early Learning Center will expand to One City Schools this fall, which is "one of the state’s first 4K and kindergarten charter options authorized by the University of Wisconsin System’s Office of Educational Opportunity," reports The Cap Times.

“I love that all of our kids, regardless of who they are, are getting a diverse experience. That is what lowers boundaries ... It takes us all to do it,” Caire told The Cap Times.
