Currently the Executive Director, Student Academic Success (On Administrative Secondment) and an Associate Professor in Educational Administration, Dr. Cranston was fortunate to join the Faculty of Education in 2008 after spending 16 years in the K-12 education system as a teacher, principal and superintendent in a career than spanned all three of Canada’s “Prairie” provinces. He researches and teaches as part of an transdisciplinary, international “community of inquiry” on topics that explore formal and non-formal teacher preparation and the ethical dimensions of school leadership with a particular focus on how capacity building in the education system can transform a set of seemingly random acts into a just enterprise. His work uses critical perspectives to uncover how organizational structures and behaviours can act as blinders to social injustice and inequity in the education system.
