Walking in a Student's Shoes (Video)

| No comments

This spring, more than 1,300 school leaders from all 50 states and over 26 countries participated in the first Shadow a Student Challenge. The idea comes from a partnership between the Institute of Design at Stanford University and IDEO, a leading design firm that also works with schools.

Among those who accepted the challenge was Assistant Principal Karen Ritter of East Leyden High, outside Chicago. She put aside her walkie-talkie and followed one 9th grader through all of his classes—not to mention gym, the lunch line, and a full slate of homework.

What did she learn? Education Week reports in this video which aired on PBS NewsHour on Tuesday.
