Join CRPE's Paul T. HIll and Ashley E. Jochim as they discuss their new book, A Democratic Constitution for Public Education.
Ashley Jochim is a research analyst at the Center on Reinventing Public Education. Her research focuses on policy analysis and implementation, including work on state education agencies, Common Core standards, school choice, and district reform efforts. A political scientist by training, Ashley is an expert on education governance and the politics of education policy. She is a co-author (with Paul Hill) of a recent book (University of Chicago Press, 2014) that suggests who governs public education is much less important than what powers they have. Her academic research can be found in the Policy Studies Journal, Publius, Politics and Governance, and Political Research Quarterly, as well as numerous edited volumes, including the Handbook of School Choice and the Oxford Handbook of American Bureaucracy. In 2012, she was selected as one of a dozen emerging education policy scholars interested in narrowing the gap between research and policy. Prior to working at CRPE, she was a graduate fellow at the Center for American Politics and Public Policy at the University of Washington as well as a research analyst at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office for Civil Rights. Ashley holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and psychology and a PhD in political science, both from the University of Washington.
