Birmingham-- Today is the first day on the job for Craig Witherspoon. He's the new superintendent of the Birmingham City Schools. Witherspoon takes the helm of a school corporation plagued with poor academic performance and declining enrollment. On top of that, the schools face significant budget cuts. Witherspoon tells WBHM's Andrew Yeager he'll address those issues first by listening and learning.
