Penn GSE Partnership

Advisory Board

The initial SDP-Penn GSE Shared Solutions Advisory Board included key stakeholders in the Philadelphia community.  

  • Gregory M. Anderson, Dean, College of Education, Temple University
  • Michael Casserly, Executive Director, Council of Great City Schools
  • William Lynch, Professor, School of Education, Drexel University
  • Terry Pittman, Parent Representative
  • Kate Shaw, Executive Director, Research for Action
  • Paul Socolar, Co-founder, Philadelphia Public School Notebook
  • Nancy Songer, Dean, School of Education, Drexel University
  • Elliot Weinbaum, Senior Program Officer, William Penn Foundation
  • Maria Archangelo, Editor/Publisher, Philadelphia Public School Notebook

Additionally, Shared Solutions created teacher and principal advisory groups for feedback on survey development and the 2014-2016 study of school improvement.

Currently, each partnership project has its own set of advisors to reflect the expertise needed for different studies. The goal is always to involve research, policymakers and practitioners in the work to ensure all relevant perspectives are contributed to the work.
