Scott Morgan, Founder and CEO of Education Pioneers, joined the Choice Media "Ed Reform Minute" podcast to discuss why leaders and managers will be fundamental in the transformation of U.S. school systems.
Building off of a recent National Affairs article from Rick Hess, "The Missing Half of School Reform," Morgan quotes Thomas Edison, emphasizing that "vision without execution is hallucination." He adds:
"We need to do more than cast big visions and cast bold policies to succeed in providing all students with a high quality education. We also must execute with excellence in order to realize the promise of those visions and policies. And this really requires that we have strong leaders and managers in positions outside the school building. And those leaders—we feel at Education Pioneers—are essential to building a high-performing educational system where the 50 million students that are educated across the U.S. are educated at a very high level."
