Episode 08

Guest: Andrew Rotherham

Hi, I’m Rachael Maves and you’re listening to the Getting Naked with Leaders in Education podcast where we strip away the layers and get to the raw, unfiltered stories behind the leaders shaping the future of education. My guest today is Andy Rotherham.

Andrew J. Rotherham is a co-founder and partner at Bellwether, a national nonprofit that exists to transform education to ensure systemically marginalized young people achieve outcomes that lead to fulfilling lives and flourishing communities. Rotherham leads external relations at Bellwether also works in the organization’s Policy and Evaluation practice area. He serves on the Virginia Board of Education.

Rotherham occupies a unique place in the U.S. education sector working across silos. He has been appointed to senior policymaking roles by Democrats and Republicans; works at the intersection of research and policy, media, and practice; and is a longtime champion of heterodoxy, empiricism, and pragmatism in education policy.
