Personal statement 

For several years I have studied the implications of the President George W. Bush administration's No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), examining its influence on curriculum development, teacher education, and overall educational policy and practice. NCLB ushered in a significantly greater role for the federal government, increasing the surveillance and monitoring of public education by the Department of Education (ED) using standardized testing, and often including the sanctioning of the nation's public schools and school districts. Relying largely on advice provided by foundations, President Barack Obama's Department of Education—using an initiative called Race to the Top (RTT)—doubled down on the accountability measures that NCLB enshrined. RTT expanded charter schools, rewarded the adoption of teacher pay-for-performance schemes using controversial, value-added measures, and incentivized states to adopt Common Core State Standards (CCSS).  

Following on the heels of RTT and CCSS, and coupled with—in several states—corporate sponsored teacher performance assessments like Pearson’s (edTPA), education reforms continue to dramatically impact educator preparation programs (EPPs) and their institutions of higher education (IHEs). With the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), a new process replaces NCLB and RTT, reducing the federal oversight role both directly and indirectly. Congress passed at the end of 2015 the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), devolving the federal role and sending much of the oversight and accountability associated with the administration of schooling back to the states and local control.

PK-12 public education is now undergoing a significant reset. As a result, teacher education faculty and university administration nationwide need to be actively engaged in the political process if they intend to be relevant for improving teaching and learning across the public education spectrum. I am personally and professionally committed to researching teaching and learning in order to better advocate for the policies that our students, teachers, and communities need. 

Service 

To this end, I am a member of the Committee on Government Relations and Advocacy, charged with supporting the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) and its membership in advocating for the profession. This work includes –
