Ten Books of Impact for Educational Leaders

By Tyler Bonin

Every Anchored podcast episode, we ask guests for an influential work in their educational journey

These are their selections

CLT’s Anchored podcast just crossed a big milestone by publishing our tenth episode! It has been an excellent experience to engage with leading thinkers in conversations at the intersection of education and culture. The show has highlighted the important (and often overlooked) role of education in both promoting civil discourse and ultimately fostering unity. 

 

At the end of every episode, guests are asked to name a text which has proven to be fundamental to their educational journey—their responses are below! If you haven’t listened to the Anchored podcast yet, you can find it on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you subscribe to podcasts. All episodes are also available on our official website. Please join us, as we have many great guests and compelling conversations lined up!
