Presented and produced by Seán Delaney

On this week's programme I bring you my interview with Professor Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Professor Lawrence-Lightfoot has written 10 books, including The Good High School: Portraits of Character and Culture and The Essential Conversation: What Parents and Teachers Can Learn from Each Other. In the course of our interview, we discussed the following matters:

  • Diversity and tokenism
  • Why education research needs to move away from a pathological approach
  • An alternative approach to conducting educational research
  • Visibility of children in classrooms
  • When global atrocities make the news, how can they be handled in classrooms?
  • What looking at education through a sociological lens can make visible
  • The importance of context in social science research
  • Portraiture as a form of research
  • Her book Exit: The Endings that Set Us Free
  • Why truth matters more than facts
