Head shot of Corrie Stone-Johnson, University at Buffalo faculty expert on school reform.

Corrie Stone-Johnson is an expert on educational leadership and reform.

Her research examines change within schools, highlighting the ways in which people interact to foster or impede reform. She is particularly concerned with understanding the social contexts and organizational cultures within which teachers, leaders and school support staff experience change.

Her research has examined such topics as responsible leadership; relationships between school leaders and school communities; and differing concepts of professionalism in schools.

Stone-Johnson is author of the book “Generational Identity, Educational Change, and School Leadership,” which explores how the generational identity of teachers influences their views on reform. According to the publisher’s description of Stone-Johnson’s findings, “Teachers of the Boomer generation, an era characterized by optimism and innovation, tend to be more resistant to change than those of Generation X, for whom standardization represents the norm, not a shift.”
