Fredrick M. Hess Discusses his New Book The Cage-Busting Teacher at MCE
Educators gathered at MCE on Monday, March 23rd, to listen to Dr. Fredrick M. Hess discuss his soon to be released book The Cage-Busting Teacher. Dr. Hess, a graduate of Harvard University and director of Education Policy Studies at The American Enterprise Institute, is an iconic author on education policy and administration.
“Teachers tend to get stuck at policy, bureaucracy, and leadership” said Dr. Hess, who then went on to present a number of ways for teachers to proactively improve their schools and systems through interaction with administration and policy. The evening concluded with a lively discussion that focused primarily on Colorado’s education policy as participants discussed their own experiences, both positive and negative.
