About this Speaker
Randall Sampson, Ph.D., ensures equity and access for students through innovative learning models. Dr. Sampson has experience at the K-12 secondary education level as an administrator, teacher, and a national transformation specialist.
These are skill sets Dr. Sampson honed through the Harvard University Achievement Gap Initiative and through teacher quality research with Harvard University's Dr. Ronald F. Ferguson. As a practitioner, Dr. Sampson's analysis of students’ performance data provided a national value-add approach to building sustainable learning environments.
At Dr. Sampson's former high school Westerville North High School, such practices led him to identify gaps in student enrollment in Advanced Placement (AP) courses that led the school district to create systemic corrective measures to improve student learning outcomes. As a result, the school experienced a 600% increase of African-American students enrolled in AP courses. Additionally, the school saw a 35% increase of students' AP exam scores rising from 3 to 4.
