Mr Crocetta is one of 20 principals chosen for the Australia-first opportunity to learn from the world’s best educators and drive school reform in WA.

The principals will take part in an intensive course delivered by the Harvard Graduate School of Education with online learning and executive mentoring.

Education Minister Peter Collier said the principals would travel to Boston in June.

“The modern principal not only needs to be an exceptional leader, but an entrepreneur with the vision to drive new ideas,” he said.

“The Harvard experience offers a rare opportunity for WA principals to explore leadership in partnership directly with their counterparts from around the world.”

The 20 principals were selected from more than 130 applicants.

“These principals were chosen because they have made an outstanding contribution to public education,” Mr Collier said.

“On their return, they will provide expertise in future reform and innovation across all public schools, including their own.”
