About the Author
  • Anne Galletta
    Cleveland State University
    ANNE GALLETTA is assistant professor at the College of Education and Human Services at Cleveland State University. As a social psychologist, her research interests involve the nature of social relations and considerations of equity within schools and communities. Her work includes book chapters and journal articles examining the complexity of social identity development among youth and its influence on the nature and extent of their educational participation. Additionally, her research focus is on the engagement of community, youth, and educators with educational change efforts. In particular, she attends to the role of institutional conflict in creating the potential for transformative change in schools and school systems. She has also examined the ways in which educators and community groups have restructured schools toward improved student opportunities and outcomes, while responding to the broader press for demonstrating accountability. As the tradition of action research is central to her work, Dr. Galletta is currently involved with projects at several urban and inner-ring suburban schools, theorizing complex societal problems along with those most deeply impacted and frequently least likely to be engaged in the deliberation of solutions.
