Program Description The purpose of the Center of Pedagogy Leadership Associates Program is to work toward developing a critical mass of leaders from the public schools, from the arts and sciences, and from teacher education who understand and are committed to the goals of simultaneous renewal of schools and to the education of educators. 

Leadership Associates will work to deepen their understanding of the moral dimensions of teaching—stewardship, access, nurturing pedagogy, and democracy—and to collaborate with P-12 faculty and administrators and university education and arts/science faculty toward the renewal of schools and the preparation of educators. We will examine our roles in our respective institutions to become more effective agents for change, and propose and undertake an inquiry project to work towards these ends. 


The Leadership Associates program will be held from July 10-14, 2017 on the campus of Montclair State University. Applications are now available for the 2017 program.


The compensation for full participation in the program during the summer and academic year will be $600 per participant.  In addition, all educational materials and food (light breakfast and full lunch) will be provided.


Participants will be selected for the program by a screening committee and great efforts will be made to achieve a balance among faculty and administrators from the university and the public schools.  Every attempt will be made to achieve as wide a district representation as possible.  Administrator/teacher teams are encouraged to apply. 


To apply, please complete and submit the following online application:

Beyond Measure sets out to challenge the assumptions of our current education story. Rather than ask why our students fail to measure up, this film asks us all to reconsider the greater purpose of education. What if our education system valued personal growth over test scores? Put inquiry over mimicry? Encouraged passion over rankings? What if we decided that the purpose of school was not the transmission of facts or formulas, but the transformation of every student? And what if this paradigm-shift was driven not by politicians but by students, parents, and teachers? In Beyond Measure, we went in search of those answers and found a revolution brewing in public schools across the country. From rural Kentucky to San Diego, and from bucolic Massachusetts to El Paso, Texas, we feature schools that are breaking away from our outmoded, test-driven education culture and pioneering a new vision for our classrooms. These are schools that are asking our students to invent, to make, to think beyond their school walls. These are schools that are asking students to imagine how they can effect change in the world. They’re transforming the roles of students and teachers, and putting more faith in the ingenuity of our children. They see critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity as the bedrock of a good education and the key to success after graduation. Best of all? They are dramatically and measurably improving outcomes for children of all backgrounds--becoming schools where practically every student graduates and goes on to finish college. Beyond Measure boasts a collection of scholars and experts who put our stories in context, including Sir Ken Robinson Ph.D., Linda Darling-Hammond Ph.D., Daniel Pink, Yong Zhao, Ph.D., Jo Boaler, Ph.D., and Alison Gopnik Ph.D.. Beyond Measure fills a void that too many other education stories have left empty, offering a positive picture of what’s innovative and possible in American education when communities decide they are ready for change.
