Dr. Terrance Green is an Associate Professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy at the University of Texas at Austin. His research examines the relationship between educational leadership, schools, and neighborhood-communities, with a focus on racial and educational equity. His writing has been published in several journals, including Teachers College Record and Educational Administration Quarterly. During our conversation, we discussed the role that school and district leaders play in extending the traditional physical boundaries of a school to build partnerships between schools and communities. We also talked about the impact of gentrification on the schooling system.
