#10 Amplifying Dr. Michael Fullan
In this episode, Joanna and Hallie talk with a Global Leadership Director (wowza!), the optimistic education researcher himself: Dr. Michael Fullan. Michael is an advocate for educators and explains how he writes what he captures from people on the frontlines within education. He has a clear way of expressing what’s going on in schools and how we can work towards making schools a place teachers and students can grow and learn.
Hear about how Joanna and Michael linked up through the concept of how schools are ‘Academic Obsessed’. Also, hear about how they have evolved to working together, including an op-ed titled “When It Comes to the Teacher Shortage, Who’s Abandoning Whom?”. (Links below to read more about it)
Most importantly, Michael is hopeful and inspires Hallie and Joanna (and hopefully you, the listener!) about where we can head in education when we ground in what’s working and offer effective, breakthrough solutions to the problems we face right now.
