Dr. Linda-Darling Hammond, Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education Emeritus at the Stanford Graduate School of Education, is an authority on school reform and restructuring, educational equity, and teacher education and quality. In 2015 she also became Founder, President, and CEO of the education think tank the Learning Policy Institute, where she has focused in part on how to address U.S. teacher shortages by developing policy solutions that strengthen the profession.

Darling-Hammond began her career as a public school teacher in Pennsylvania and has co-founded a preschool and a public high school. She served as Director of the RAND Corporation’s education program and was an endowed professor at Columbia University, Teachers College. She has consulted widely with federal, state, and local officials and educators on strategies for improving education policies and practices.

A member of former President Obama’s transition team as education advisor, Darling-Hammond was among the candidates for U.S. Secretary of Education in the Obama administration. She is regularly quoted in the media on a range of education topics and appears frequently on education panels.

Among Darling-Hammond’s many accomplishments, she launched the Stanford Educational Leadership Institute and School Redesign Network, for which she worked with a network of urban districts to redesign schools and district offices. From 1994–2001, she served as Executive Director of the National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future, a blue-ribbon panel whose 1996 report, What Matters Most: Teaching for America’s Future, led to major policy changes affecting teaching and teacher education.

Darling-Hammond is a member of the National Academy of Education and Past President of the American Educational Research Association and recipient of its awards for Distinguished Contributions to Research in Education and Relating Research to Practice, as well as recipient of AERA Division L's award for Lifetime Achievement.

Darling-Hammond has authored or edited more than 25 books and more than 500 articles on education policy and practice, including the award-winning books The Right to Learn, Teaching as the Learning Profession, Preparing Teachers for a Changing World, and The Flat World and Education.
