Episode 53: Dr. Carolyn Dumaresq, Former PA Sec’t of Ed, Union Leader, Charter Advocate

Teacher, principal, superintendent, secretary of education, teachers’ union executive director—Dr. Carolyn Dumaresq knows education inside-out. Now, she’s fighting opposition in an effort to open a charter school in Harrisburg. In this conversation with Commonwealth Partners president and CEO Matt Brouillette, Dr. Dumaresq shares how someone who once worked for the state’s biggest teachers’ union today is a charter school advocate (hint: it’s the union that’s changed its position), and tells why some say her life has “gone to the dogs.”
