Meet Our Newest Faculty Member
Jessica Bacon is a new member of the Counseling, Leadership, Literacy, and Special Education faculty. Soon to be Dr. Bacon, Jessica is defending her dissertation in September 2012. Her doctoral research at Syracuse University focused on the impact of the standards-based reform movement on an urban elementary school that has been designated Persistently Low Achieving under the No Child Left Behind Act. Jessica’s academic and social commitments revolve around mitigating oppression for people with disabilities and promoting more inclusive and equitable services and systems. She has served as an advisor for self-advocacy groups, worked at a parent-advocacy resource center for special education services, created inclusive post-secondary programs for transition age youth and adults, provided technical assistance to schools and educators interested in promoting inclusive practices, and helped to establish a disability cultural center at Syracuse University. Jessica believes that her teaching, research, and service experiences complement one another and lives the values embodied in LUTE (Lehman Urban Transformative Education), the School of Education’s conceptual framework.
