Introducing the new JEA Editorial Team

As the publisher for Journal of Educational Administration, I’m very pleased to introduce the journal’s new editorial team, headed by Dr Chen Schechter and Dr Jayson Richardson. They succeed Professor Hallinger and Professor Walker, who, ably assisted by Dr Bryant, have worked tirelessly over their tenure to build the journal’s reputation and character. JEA has flourished under their guidance, and we are grateful for their dedication and hard work.

Chen is a professor of educational leadership in the School of Education at Bar-Ilan University, Israel. Chen has been selected to serve on a number of editorial boards, including that of JEA and has published extensively in a wide range of highly ranked journals. He also serves as Chair of the Board of Directors at the Institute for the Advancement of Teaching, Learning and Social Integration. Chen’s research interests include Leadership Development/Preparation, Educational Change/Reform in Accountability Systems, Collaborative Learning Strategies, and Systems Thinking.

Jayson is an Associate Professor at the University of Kentucky. He has published widely across a number of education titles, including Educational Administration Quarterly and JEA, as well as reviewing for the American Educational Research Association, the University Council for Educational Administration and the Comparative and International Education Society.

Chen and Jayson are joined by a team of three Senior Associate Editors, David Gurr, Karen Seashore Louis and Moosung Lee, who as respected and well known members of the academic community, bring a wealth of experience to the team.

Commenting on their appointment, the team said ‘The editorial board of JEA is full of well-respected academics in the field of educational leadership. As Editors-in-Chief and Senior Associate Editors of JEA, we would involve the distinguished editorial board members in the direction of the journal. We aspire for a collaborate work in the solicitation of articles and in increasing the reach and impact of the journal. We would expect all board members to be active reviewers for the journal as well as suggesting new ideas for advancing the journal. Together, it would be our goal as editors to make JEA the number one internationally go-to journal for scholars in the field of educational leadership based on academic reputation, inclusiveness and depth.’  

I hope you will join me in wishing Professor Hallinger, Professor Walker and Dr Bryant the very best in their future endeavours, and in welcoming the new editorial team in taking JEA through to this exciting new chapter.

Best wishes,
