Each year, the Comparative and International Education Society holds elections for the position of vice-president. The way the society is organized means that this person will automatically become president after serving one year as vice president. Every vice president, in other words, steps up to hold the presidency. So, vice presidential elections are a big deal. This year, two outstanding candidates have been nominated, David Post and Aaron Benavot. Today I interview each candidate back-to-back to give CIES members a better understanding of their proposed agendas. Aaron Benavot is Director of the Global Education Monitoring Report published by UNESCO. Later this year he will return to the Department of Educational Policy and Leadership in the School of Education of SUNY-Albany, where he serves as Professor of Global Education Policy. David Post is Professor of education at Pennsylvania State University. You can check out for more details. Please remember: Voting concludes on February 17!
