Meg Vaillancourt profiles Robert Spillane (Superintendent, Boston Public Schools) as he prepares to leave Boston for a post in Virginia. Vaillancourt reports on Spillane's accomplishments in improving the Boston Public School System and cutting the school budget deficit. Her report includes footage from an interview with Spillane. Spillane compliments the teaching staff in the Boston Public Schools and talks about his opinion of Arthur Garrity (federal judge). Spillane says that Garrity's stewardship of the school system was a "disaster." Vaillancourt interviews Peter McCormick (President, Bank of New England) about Spillane's good relationship with the business community. Vaillancourt speculates about whether Spillane will one day pursue a career in politics. The report also features footage of Spillane receiving an award and of Spillane socializing with groups of people.
