Fred is an education visionary who knows firsthand that our nation’s schools need transformational change if we are to meet the challenges of the next decades.

Supporting educators at all levels and improving student achievement are through lines of Fred's career.

He has co-authored two books that have made significant contributions to the field of education, demonstrating how a comprehensive approach to professional learning can be achieved so that everyone in a system is a learner, and how principals apply a learning lens to their many critical responsibilities to create a productive climate for learning and collaboration. "Becoming a Learning System" and "The Learning Principal -- Becoming a Learning Leader"  are time-tested Learning Forward resources for schools and leaders.
