Linda Greenough McGlynn received her M.S.W. and Ph.D. from the School of Social Welfare, State University of New York at Albany. Twenty-five years of clinical work has been devoted to both community and school related services; developing and implementing programs for vulnerable children, youth, and families. These have included health-social services and positive youth development opportunities, many working within the context of reducing risk and increasing resiliency and protection for minority and immigrant children and families. The emphasis of her most recent work has been on globalization’s effects on child well being and educational equity, most particularly for vulnerable populations.
She is committed to a participatory action research approach and is the author of the book, The Power of the Student-Teacher Connection (VDM Publishing, Fall, 2008), as well as book reviews and articles on education, democracy and immigrant populations.
