Associate Professor Emeritus
Brian Delany was an associate professor of teacher education. He was interested in organizational decision making and schooling's contribution to social stratification. His work examined how schools cope with turbulent policy and resource environments, how students and teachers become resources to be used in the process of institutional coping, and how recent efforts to decentralize decision making related to countervailing tendencies for control and accountability by government. His recent work addressed these issues in comparative perspectives through the study of educational ordinance and governance in the United States, the United Kingdom, and the People's Republic of China.
