Grant Wiggins (1950–2015) was the president of Authentic Education in Hopewell, N.J., a consulting, research, and publishing organization.
Wiggins consulted with schools, districts, and state education departments on a variety of reform matters, organized conferences and workshops, and developed print materials and web resources on curricular change.
For 20 years, Wiggins worked on some of the most influential reform initiatives in the country, including Vermont's portfolio system and Ted Sizer's Coalition of Essential Schools. He established statewide consortia devoted to assessment reform for North Carolina and headed standards clarification work for the state education departments in Delaware, New Jersey, and Mississippi.
He earned a doctorate in education from Harvard University and a bachelor's degree from St. John's College in Annapolis, Md.
