School change: an interview with the commissioner.

by Steve Wyckoff on September 24, 2010

I’ve embedded an interview with the Commissioner of Education, Dr. Diane DeBacker. Deb Haneke does an outstanding job of asking really important questions of Diane. I would urge all Kansas educators, and even educators outside the state of Kansas, to listen to the entire interview. Diane touches on some very important topics.

I’m especially interested, and encouraged by the things that Diane has to say. I hope that what she believe should happen in education can be made to happen. She’s a good thinker and has a clear vision of what our schools should look like. I hope she doesn’t get buried by the bureaucracy, and the special interest groups who are only interested in protecting their own turf. With her leadership I have faith that we can experience real school change.

You can also view some very interesting interviews with state Board of Education members, And Cheryl Semmel, executive director of United School Administrators of Kansas by going to the Crisis In The Classroom website. – Steve Wyckoff
