Scanlan named an author of the month

diverseschoolsLynch School of Education Associate Professor Martin Scanlan, who works out of the Roche Center for Catholic Education, and his co-editor have been named “Authors of the Month” for April by Routledge publishing for their book Leadership for Increasingly Diverse Schools. The book provides both practicing and aspiring leaders with strategies for working with students of all socioeconomic statuses, races, religions, sexual orientations, languages and special needs to reverse long-standing trends of educational inequities, exclusion and disparate school outcomes. Scanlan’s research explores how to strengthen the communities of practice in schools to promote inclusion of students across multiple dimensions of diversity. His scholarship – which has focused primarily on reform in special education service delivery, bilingual education and school-community collaboration – has been published in dozens of articles in peer-reviewed journals. He has spent more than a decade as a teacher and administrator in elementary and middle schools in Washington, D.C., Berkeley, CA, and Madison, WI.
