Where Are Our Greenfields?: A Conversation with Frederick M. Hess
Perkins-Gough, Deborah
Educational Leadership, v67 n7 p12-15 Apr 2010
In an interview with Educational Leadership, Frederick M. Hess talks about greenfield schooling--a policy approach that attempts to knock down the formal and informal barriers that stand in the way of innovation in education. Greenfield schooling, he explains, "doesn't imagine that we should go around razing districts or schools or taking resources, willy-nilly, away from current operations and just handing them over to anybody. What it suggests is a mindset in which we're focused on creating opportunities for problem solvers to solve problems."
