Dr. Kaleb Rashad is the Co-Founder & Creative Director at the Center for Love & Justice located within the High Tech High Graduate School of Education (HTH GSE). Kaleb works with community leaders in the US/Canada, Spain, and Hong Kong to create new schools and redesign existing schools focused on advancing equity through anti-racist project-based learning.
As an instructor at the GSE, Kaleb teaches courses on creativity, innovation and community-based liberatory design. Prior to his work at the GSE, Kaleb served as the Director of the Gary and Jerri-Ann Jacobs High Tech High (San Diego); and before High Tech High, Kaleb worked as a principal and teacher in more traditional settings.
Kaleb holds a BA in Human Development, two Master’s Degrees, and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership focusing on relational trust and organizational change. Kaleb currently supports individual schools, districts and mosaic networks nationally and internationally experimenting at the intersection of leadership, equity and design. He also works alongside the disruptors of inequity at Stanford’s K12 Lab, IDEO’s Teacher’s Guild, School Retool, & Leadership + Design.
When not spreading joyzistance (that is: the state of resisting regression to the mean with a spirit of ancestral joy), Kaleb enjoys hiking, camping, and surfing with his two boys, live blues and jazz, soul food, performance art and reading the classics.
