Boisi Lecture: “Testing and Educational Policy”

In the 13th Boisi Lecture, the Lynch School of Education welcomes Henry Braun as the Boisi Professor of Education and Public Policy. In his lecture, Braun argues that if accountability is to play a more constructive role in school improvement, then school management must accept that testing is only one component of a complex, dynamic system. Braun joins BC after 27 years at the Educational Testing Service in Princeton, New Jersey.

Braun is introduced by Joseph O'Keefe, SJ, dean of the Lynch School. The lecture is given in honor of Albert E. Beaton, Augustus Long Professor Emeritus at the Lynch School.
