Howard S. Adelman
Howard S. Adelman and Linda Taylor have worked together for over 40 years in schools and communities across the country. They focus on improving how schools and communities address barriers to learning and teaching, reengage disconnected students, and promote healthy development. They have led major projects focused on dropout prevention, enhancing the mental health facets of school-based health centers, and developing comprehensive, school-based approaches for students with learning, behavioral, and emotional problems. Their current focus is on policies, practices, and large-scale systemic transformation, which includes facilitating the National Initiative for Transforming Student and Learning Supports. Adelman received his PhD from the University of California, Los Angeles.
