Resume/CV

Katrina Bulkley is Professor of Educational Leadership at Montclair State University. She examines issues around the increasing use of new governance structures and non-public actors to improve urban education. In particular, she is interested in the escalating focus on privatization, contracting and alternative governance (including charter schools) in urban school systems, and the implications of those changes for children in city schools.
