Background Information

Dr. Lynch is an Assistant Professor of Education at Widener University, a blogger for the Huffington Post, and an education advice columnist for Education World. He spent seven years as a K-12 teacher, which gave him an intimate view of the impediments that hinder genuine education reform. He has focused the second stage of his career on researching topics related to educational policy, school leadership and education reform, particularly in the urban learning environment.

Dr. Lynch’s scholarship is intended to make a redoubtable, theoretically and empirically based argument that genuine school reform and the closing of the well-chronicled achievement gap are possible. His research and commentaries have been featured in publications throughout the United States and have centered on issues ranging from school reform to politics. Throughout his career, he has been interested in developing collaborative enterprises that move the field of education forward.

Dr. Lynch is the author of a newly released book entitled, It’s Time for a Change: School Reform for the Next Decade. In addition, he is the author of two forthcoming books; A Guide to Effective School Leadership Theories (Routledge, February 26, 2012), and The Call to Teach: An Introduction to Teaching (Pearson, 2013). He is also the editor of the forthcoming 2-volume set, Before Obama: A Reappraisal of Black Reconstruction Era Politicians (Praeger, 2012). Please visit his website at for more information.
