Although retired as a teaching professor, I continue to write and consult in my areas of expertise: urban school district governance and ways to include parents and community resources in the active reforming of urban school systems. Most recently my writing and research have been on the implications of high stakes accountability for school principals in New York City, published in an edited volume as well as the on-line journal EPPA. Currently pursuing other writing projects that focus on Japan and China in 1920s and 1930s.
