Update: What's It Like To Cover A Turnaround Effort?
Somehow in just nine minutes host Matt Weber manages to ask me all sorts of good questions about (how did the kids and teachers feel about me being around, visiting for the first time, etc.) on the new Harvard EdCast. Check it out here and let me know if you want to have me on your show, podcast, book club, etc. I've done a bunch of talks with education groups and training sessions and so far at least it's been lots of fun. There are also a bunch of other interviews in the series, including actor Jim True-Frost (the failed cop who becomes a teacher on The Wire) and reform enthusiast Whitney Tilson. I must warn you, however, that there is some tinkly Classical piano played to begin and end the show. It is Harvard, after all.
