Dr. Sperandio's primary research interest is focused on gender issues in educational leadership in both developed and developing countries. I am currently exploring aspects of women’s motivation and journey to become educational leaders, together with their access to leadership training and the role that mentoring plays in this training, in Uganda, Bangladesh and urban school districts in Philadelphia. Secondary research interests include the development of international and global citizenship programs, international school leadership, and the historical development of education for girls in developed and developing countries.
