Summer Principals Academy
The Education Leadership Program in the Department of Organization and Leadership
Joshua Biederman teaches Social Studies at Thurgood Marshall Academy Public Charter High School in Washington, D.C.’s Ward 8, the poorest of the city’s 8 wards. At Thurgood Marshall, Joshua teaches three classes: AP United States History, DC History, and an upper level history elective course. In addition, he coaches the Thurgood Marshall Academy Debate team, and serves on the leadership team of Washington, D.C.’s Urban Debate League. Joshua’s goal after the Summer Principal’s Academy is to lead a progressive college preparatory school that accounts for teacher, parent, and especially student needs. He hopes the school will work towards ending the achievement gap in American cities.
