Our failing schools. Enough is enough!

Why, why, why does our education system look so similar to the way it did 50 years ago? Millions of students were failing then, as they are now — and it’s because we’re clinging to a business model that clearly doesn’t work. Education advocate Geoffrey Canada dares the system to look at the data, think about the customers and make systematic shifts in order to help greater numbers of kids excel.

About me

Matthew Lynch

CEO, Lynch Consulting Group

My career includes significant experience at multiple institutions where I have designed solutions that span the entire P-20 student life cycle.

As a full-time faculty member at Widener University, I assisted with the Center for Education’s accreditation efforts. As a department chair at Langston University, I handled course development, scheduling, and evaluations. I also made adjustments each semester to promote improved results. I used data to realign class schedules and restore enrollments through a phased approach for attaining degrees and certificates.

We completely revamped the coursework, which brought our curriculum into the 21st century. We also lowered the number of semester hours required to graduate from all our programs in order to make them more marketable and place them in line with the rest of the state and private universities in Oklahoma.

When I began as Dean of the School of Education, Psychology and Social Work at Virginia Union, the graduation rate among teacher education majors was abysmal. By the end of my second year, we had increased the number of teacher education graduates by 433%. In spring 2015, we launched the university’s first academic graduate program – the Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction.

My research-related activities are concentrated into three major areas: school reform, closing the achievement gap and improved teacher education.
