Alverno College honored Dr. Linda Darling-Hammond with the Sister Joel Read Outstanding Educator Award at a ceremony on April 7. The award recognizes educational leaders who have brought significant improvements to education through their leadership, practice and scholarship. It is only the second time anyone has been given this award.

Dr. Darling-Hammond is the Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education at Stanford University, where she launched the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education and the School Redesign Network. She served as executive director of the National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future, a blue-ribbon panel whose report, “What Matters Most: Teaching and America’s Future,” was named one of the most influential reports in U.S. education and led to sweeping policy changes affecting teaching and teacher education. She was also named one of the nation’s ten most influential people affecting educational policy over the past decade.

WUWM stopped by to talk with Dr. Darling-Hammond before the award ceremony. You can listen to the story here:
