In the context of education, empowerment can be a loaded word. Everyone wants it, but not everyone knows how to best implement it. However, Dr. Shields – former professor at The Johns Hopkins School of Education and international leader on educational change – knows how to empower others, and he has the results to prove it.
As the Special Advisor to the Blue Ribbon Commission on Educational Equity and a recipient of the 2015 Social Innovator award, 2016-2017 Open Society Institute Fellow, Dr. Shields has been studying, writing about, and implementing change in schools and non-profit organizations for years. What’s more, he has tracked and measured his methods for change. And they work.
