President, Institute for Educational Inquiry and Founder, Center for Educational Renewal

Nominated By: Michael Wolfe

For much of his career, Goodlad has been involved in an array of educational reform programs and projects and has engaged in large-scale studies of educational change, schooling, and teacher education. Most recently, he has inquired into the mission of education in a democratic society to which such renewal must be delivered. In his book, In Praise of Education, he argues that education is an inalienable right in a democratic society, and advances the view that the purpose of education is to develop individual and collective democratic character.
