Lacey, Wash. – Fumie Hashimoto, Ph.D., a member of the
Saint Martin's College education division faculty since 2000, has been
honored with Phi Delta Kappa International’s Region B John Goodlad Award
for Educational Excellence.
The award recognizes “the outstanding service and
excellence in leadership” provided by Hashimoto to the Olympia chapter
of Phi Delta Kappa from 2001 to 2004. She served as chapter vice
president in 2000-2001; as president and webmaster from 2001 to 2003;

advocacy, leadership and service.
Education scholar and former UCLA education dean John
Goodlad helped found the Center for Education Renewal at the University
of Washington and is founder and president of the Institute for
Educational Inquiry in Seattle. Region B recognized Hashimoto with the
award in honor of the 20th anniversary of Goodlad’s book, “A Place
Called School – Prospects for the Future,” a milestone account of the
largest on-scene study of U.S. schools ever conducted.
Hashimoto’s award was presented at Phi Delta Kappa
International Region B’s John Goodlad Symposium in Bellevue last month.
The region encompasses 11 states stretching from the Northwest to
Minnesota and Iowa and including the Canadian provinces of British
