In the presentation, Claudia Galindo provides an overview of full-service community schools and discuss their relevance for improving the educational outcomes of racially / ethnically diverse and poor students. The first section describes the current knowledge on the implementation of this reform. The second section examines challenges that must be addressed if full-service community schools are to realize their transformative potential.
Galindo is an associate professor of education policy at the University of Maryland, College Park. Her research, teaching, and service demonstrate a strong commitment to improving educational opportunities for racial and ethnic minority students in K-12 grades, with an emphasis on the Latinx community. Her interdisciplinary research integrates the fields of sociology, developmental psychology, and immigration.
