When you think about learning, it’s important to remember that each classroom – or wherever the learning takes place – is made up of a number of individuals with different needs. A one-size-fits-all approach just won’t work. How does that play out when you are overseeing nearly two million students?

Paolo DeMaria is Ohio’s Superintendent of Public Instruction. He’s a passionate leader, a tireless worker, and a respectful listener – and he also has a great sense of humor. He uses all of these skills on a regular basis as he supports Ohio’s 3,600 public schools and 1.7 million students.

We talk about the bigger picture of how the education machine works, improving the school system to be more proactive than reactive, and creating partnerships based around mutual work towards a common goal.
