Anna Katyn Chmielewski
Associate Professor of Educational Leadership and Policy
I am an associate professor of Educational Leadership & Policy in the Department of Leadership, Higher and Adult Education at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) of the University of Toronto.
I am cross-appointed in the department of sociology (status only) and am affiliated with the Data, Equity and Policy in Education (DEPE) lab, the Education + Skills Research Initiative and with the collaborative specialization in Comparative, International & Development Education (CIDE).
My research examines educational policy and social inequality, both in North America and internationally. Specifically, I am interested in socio-economic disparities in academic achievement, school segregation, neighbourhood inequality, and policies around school and program choice, streaming and tracking. I use a sociological lens and quantitative methods for analysis of large-scale data. I am also interested in the methods and policy uses of international large-scale assessments, such as the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) and the Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC).
Information for Potential Students
I am currently recruiting masters and doctoral students interested in using quantitative methods to study educational inequality, policy and/or international comparisons in K-12 school systems.
