.M. Rubin interviews Bjorn Bolstad, principal of an exemplary public school in Norway, to gain insight into educational excellence for the 21st century.
“A TEACHER IS BOTH A WORKER AND SOMEWHAT OF AN ARTIST, AND WE NEED TO BALANCE THESE TWO PERSPECTIVES.” – PRINCIPAL BJORN BOLSTAD
In July of 2011, Dr. Kristin Sivesind, distinguished professor in the University of Oslo Faculty of Education, shared her education perspectives with us in The Global Search for Education: A View from Norway. Today, with the help of Kristin Sivesind, and Principal Bjorn Bolstad, the faculty and students of the Ringstabekk Skole in Barum, a suburb of Oslo (http://www.ringstabekk.net), we are able to share with you some additional education insights into how a model Norwegian public school is addressing skills needed in the 21st century.
