School Leadership

John Hall is an Assistant Professor of Policy, Organizational, and Leadership Studies in the College of Education at Temple University.  Dr. Hall studies the relationships among school systems, school leaders, and the broader social, cultural, and political environment. His current studies focus on three areas: leadership pipeline development in district central offices and charter management organizations; the germination and evolution of district–university–community partnerships; and the integration of design-based school improvement into leadership preparation and development.
 
Before coming to Temple, Dr. Hall coordinated the doctoral program in Leadership for Educational Equity at UC Berkeley. Prior to that, he led the Oakland Unified School District’s academic redesign team, providing support and guidance to the district’s leadership, framing policy conversations, and serving as a "boundary spanner" between research and practice. Before that, he helped launch a charter school network in the Bay Area and founded a support organization for charter leaders across the region. Dr. Hall has been a teacher and an administrator in district schools, charter schools, independent schools, and international schools. He is a founding member of American Education Reaches Out, an international consortium that develops standards and supports standard-based instruction in schools around the world. Dr. Hall began his career as a research scientist, managing neuroscience laboratories at the University of Washington and at UC San Francisco.

Urban Education

My recent scholarship has focused on conducting empirical research to enhance program and policy development for improving the conditions of education in urban schools. In recent years, I have engaged in a variety of research projects on issues such as high school and postsecondary collaborations, the connection between school leadership content knowledge in mathematics and instructional quality, and interventions to improve failing comprehensive high schools. My primary interests and expertise fall in the areas of sociology of education, urban education, high school reform, resiliency among adolescents of color, and at-risk students.

Emeritus Faculty

Urban Education

I am interested in the politics of urban education, particularly as they relate to democratic participation, equity, and difference. I see service learning and school-community partnerships as possible ways to bridge the boundaries between education professionals and inner-city residents, and improve schools through community building and community development. Most of my current work is focused on the theory and practice of university-community partnerships. I am the secretary of an NGO that links Jamaican students and edu-tourists with local partners in Jamaica (Edu-Tourism) and direct a summer abroad in Jamaica that involves international service learning. I am also collaborating with the Temple Office of Multicultural Affairs on a graduate certificate in Diversity Facilitation as well as collaborative research and practice with a French colleague, Charles Rojzman, on the applications of transformational social therapy to democratic group life.

Larry J. Krafft,  Ph.D.

Policy, Organizational, & Leadership Studies

Adult & Organizational Development

Larry J. Krafft is professor of Adult & Organizational Development.  He is the founding director of three centers at Temple:  Management and Organizational Development in Education, Center for the Study of Psychoeducational Process and Educational Policy Analysis; and has served as Department Chair.  His professional interests center on exploring and applying complex-adaptive systems perspectives through social system action research.  His field-based projects span diverse networked governmental, NGO, corporate, community, and educational settings in Asia, Africa, Caribbean, Europe and North America.  His studies of agent based dialogic approaches address nonlinear relationships among assessment, planning, and intervention, as highlighted by his professional presentations, publications and case studies. 
Larry especially enjoys exploring and creating conditions for organizational and personal learning with practitioners and students.  His current research is on the history of efforts at educational improvement in archaic structures that impede optimal learning in light of changing human conditions, needs and prospects. He is studying global and local emerging entrepreneurial practices signifying systems of learning that challenge established notions of the nature of “education” and its derived practices, structures and benefits.
