About the EP Blog
Education Pioneers shares stories of impact, insights, ideas, and opinions to advance the conversation about what great leadership in education looks like.
EP Fellow Ivan Rahman writes, "It seems to me that we habitually let the urgency of our work—of lesson planning, grading, teaching, strategizing, and so on—harbor us from delving into critical big-picture discussions. I’m talking about the kind of discussions that force us to pause and reflect on the systemic variables that shape the lives of the youth we serve."
In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, we want to dive into the challenges and opportunities for AAPI students. Today we talk with EP Alumna Erica Mosca , founder and executive director of the nonprofit college access program Leaders in Training and a teacher in Las Vegas, Nevada.
When you think about “networking,” what comes to mind? Used-car-salesman tactics? Awkward handshakes and small talk? Rethink those negative associations.
Today, in honor of teachers everywhere, we’ve rounded up some of what our Pioneers have said about teachers. Tweet on and share the love:
Speaking up in education debates isn’t often easy (or warmly received)–even in writing. It also matters tremendously, especially for those who have voices that are too often underrepresented or ignored. And it turns out that the humble blog can be a critical vehicle to speak up and be heard. In today’s Q&A with Tanya Paperny, managing editor at Bellwether Education Partners, we dive into why blogging matters, why Bellwether hosts trainings for education bloggers, and how all of us writing about education can raise our games.
