Great to Greater How the Best Schools and Education Systems Keep Getting Better — Douglas Reeves

May 23, 2019 54:15

Although many schools and educational systems make improvements, the typical outcome, after several years, is a plateau in performance. In this hourlong discussion with attendees at Education Week’s Leaders To Learn From event in Washington, renowned speaker, researcher, and author Douglas Reeves discusses how to break through the plateau and achieve greater performance, touching on core competencies of “great to greater” schools. Reeves is the founder of Creative Leadership Solutions, a nonprofit with the mission to improve educational opportunities for students throughout the world using creative solutions for leadership, policy, teaching, and learning. He is also the founder of DouglasReeves.com, ChangeLeaders.com, and has created a non-profit called FinishTheDissertation.org, which helps doctoral students finish their dissertations via phone, Skype, or personal conferences.
