Trent Grundmeyer, assistant professor of educational leadership, gave his Specialist in Education (EdS) students an opportunity to showcase what they'd learned in class. Dr. Grundmeyer organized a mock school board meeting for students in the Education Leadership class, Policy, Influence and Legal Issues. Board members probed students with relevant questions while students served as the superintendent.
Simulations and hands on activities are an increase approach to prepare future superintendents in the School of Education Specialist Program at Drake University. For more information about this program, visit the website www.drake.edu/sedl/.
