WNET recently launched series of events about critical issues surrounding education and school leadership, thanks to a generous grant from The Wallace Foundation. These “Critical Conversations” were inspired by discussions about school leadership, which took place at the International Summit on the Teaching Profession in New York City in March, 2012, hosted by the US Department of Education. This video shows the 90-minute New York City “Critical Conversations” forum, which took place at the High School of Art and Design in New York City on November 15, 2012. The event focused on New York City’s approach to leadership and the components of The Wallace Foundation’s Principal Pipeline Initiative, including training, selection, placement, on-the-job support, and evaluation of principals. The forum was hosted by WNET/ New York Public Media and the NYC Department of Education and was made possible by funding from The Wallace Foundation.
The discussion, moderated by Beth Fertig (Contributing Editor for Education, WNYC Radio and www.schoolbook.org), included panelists Shael Polakow-Suranasky (Chief Academic Officer and Senior Deputy Chancellor, NYC Department of Education), Claudia Aguirre (Principal, Dual Language Middle School, MS247), Robert Bender (Principal, PS 11 William T. Harris) and Kim Marshall (Education Researcher). Remarks/ presentations were also made by Anthony C. Conelli (Deputy Chief Academic Officer for Leadership, NYC Department of Education) Jon Rubin (Acting Director of Education, WNET/ New York Public Media), Will Miller (President of The Wallace Foundation) and Dennis Walcott (Chancellor, NYC Department of Education).
