Abstract

Edited transcript of my interview with Dr James Biddulph, Headteacher of the University of Cambridge Primary School - which hosted part of the 2016 Centennial Conference on John Dewey's 'Democracy and Education'. We discuss: the experience of studying for a doctorate while leading a new school; the influence of key theorists such as Maxine Green and Dewey on James' thinking and leadership; the school's role in creating a new community in North-West Cambridge; the challenges of holistic education in an age of stringent measurement. Many thanks to Christine Doddington for her editorship.
