In the inaugural edition of The Resonance Test podcast, we talk with Rahn Dorsey, the City of Boston’s Chief of Education, whom the Boston Globe called “the mayor’s eyes and ears for city schools.” In this episode, Augusta Meill asks how Dorsey and Continuum partnered to work on the High School Redesign project, the purpose of test scores in education, and how design thinking can change, and possibly improve, government. A livelier podcast on Boston education you’re not likely to find.
