My research focuses on issues related to K-12 educational leadership and policy. In particular, I examine how leaders develop capacity to implement changes in teaching and learning in light of increasing expectations for school and district performance. Thus, my research considers the politics of human and fiscal resource investment in school systems; strategies to develop to human capital in schools, such as coaching and professional learning; and continuous improvement processes, including Networked Improvement Science.
