Welcome to the second Open System podcast! Thanks everyone for your great feedback and comments on the first podcast.
For the second podcast, I had the chance to sit down with a longtime friend and colleague, Dr. Ivan Duran. Dr. Duran is the Superintendent of Bellevue Public Schools in Washington state.
I've know Dr. Duran from our time together in Denver Public Schools, where I knew him as a champion of family engagement as a major priority while he was in charge of all elementary schools in the district.
In the podcast, we discuss why he got involved in education, why he cares about family engagement, the outcomes of best practice open system work and how he thinks about ensuring the entire system prioritizes the work.
