Knowing Me, Knowing Ed-U: Daisy Christodoulou

Many people who are well known for their work in education have such interesting backgrounds and stories to tell, although many of us don’t get to hear them. The aim of this podcast series is to learn a bit more about these people.

We sit down for a chat to find out a bit more about them – what was their experience of school? How did they come to work in education? What they’re currently working on etc. And in every episode we ask for three favourite pieces of music.

Whatever we discuss, every podcast episode ends with the same question: If you were in charge of the education system for a day, what one policy or structural change would you make?

In this episode we chat with Daisy Christodoulou, Teacher and Director of Education at No More Marking. We talk school life, growing-up amidst east end street markets, captaining the Warwick University Challenge team, music hall songs, teaching, Comparative Judgement and more. Our conversation is interspersed with Daisy’s three song choices and we finish with the usual big question.
