Jerome Alexander Graham

Professional Summary

Jerome Graham is an Assistant Professor in the Education Leadership and Policy Studies department at the University of Cincinnati. His research interests focus broadly on the interaction of race and class in educational policy and practice. Specifically, Jerome uses mixed-methods research designs to evaluate the effects of education reforms that target minority and disadvantaged students and the mechanisms that drive such reforms. His current research background emphasizes how schools can provide constructive school climates for students, which facilitate the process by which they develop cognitive and socio-emotional skills to improve their short- and long-term outcomes. His theoretical orientation is psychosociological, in that Jerome's research agenda focuses not only on persons' individual development (academic, emotional, and otherwise) but also on the social structures that influence their development. For this research presentation, Jerome shares findings from an investigation of the current social and emotional learning reform movement in Georgia, with particular emphasis paid to factors that influence teachers' classroom practices that build students' socioemotional well-being.
