Many of today’s education reform debates revolve around what leaders cannot do because of the rules, regulations, statutes, and contracts that inhibit their ability to improve schools and systems. AEI’s Rick Hess agrees: these constraints make it hard for education leaders to lead, trapping them in a “cage.” 

But Hess sees a way out. “Leaders have far more freedom to transform, reimagine, and invigorate teaching, learning, and schooling than is widely believed,” he says in his new book “Cage-Busting Leadership” (Harvard Education Press, 2013). Rife with stories of cage dwellers and cage busters, “Cage-Busting Leadership” aims to help current and aspiring leaders understand what the cage looks like, how to bust out of it, and how to help cultivate and sustain powerful cultures of teaching and learning that are equal to their ambitions. Join us for an all-star lineup to discuss the frustrations and the successes of real cage busters.
