Warner Faculty Contribute Opinion Essay in District Administration

Associate Professor Kara Finnigan, UR/East EPO Superintendent Shaun Nelms, alumna and Brockport Superintendent Lesli Myers ’92 (BA), ‘93W (MS), and Brighton Superintendent Kevin McGowan recently published an article in District Administration (DA) on how educational leaders can help promote inclusivity in schools. (Both Nelms and McGowan currently serve as adjunct faculty members at Warner.)
