An Assistant Head Ruminates on Educational Directions and Policy

Delphian School Assistant Headmaster Mark Siegel keeps an interesting blog (Thinking About Education) where he shares articles, comments, and musings on the changing state of education.

It’s a light policy manifesto for eduction reform.

Siegel finds interesting articles, and angles, covering any, and all, topics on education- from parental control, to testing, to student/childhood development, to school choice. He’s big on experiential learning, mastery, and individualized development.

I haven’t read a post that’s left me without a follow-up question or sitting on the fence about the topic.

Alas, Siegel isn’t a regular, or, prolific poster- few can be living the daily life of a boarding school faculty member.

What’s interesting- and the reason to give him some copy- is that, even with his daily demands as assistant headmaster, Siegel stays interested on research, data, and policy that can affect and improve the experience and achievement of his students. He’s a big picture observer and thinker in a world that succeeds (and can sometimes be hamstrung by) an intense focus on the daily life of the school and its students.

It’s interesting to see an assistant head looking outward and broadly and thinking about the ways broad issues can affect his school and students.
