Ben Levin

Dr Ben Levin, Professor and Canada Research Chair in Education Leadership and Policy at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto talks with David Stewart. Their discussion is based around Ben Levin’s recent book

How to Change 5000 Schools. Harvard Educational Press, 2008.

This conversation explores the manner in which knowledge gained from Ben Levin’s recent experiences could be applied to principal behaviour in New Zealand schools. He served as deputy minister (chief civil servant) for education in the province of Manitoba 1999-2002 and in the province of Ontario from 2004 to 2007. It is a topical exchange which explores themes currently being debated in educational circles here including the thought that schools benefit from leadership that is intelligent rather than simply obedient.

The quality of the podcast was fantastic. What a great way of obtaining and reflecting on quality professional discussion.

Looking forward to hearing the next interview.
