Casey Cobb, PhD

Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Neag School of Education (Affiliate)

Professor, Educational Leadership and Policy

Research Overview

My research interests include the examination of education policies (e.g., school choice, accountability, school reform). I pay particular attention to the implications for equity and educational opportunity.

I am not currently working on an InCHIP project. I am interested in working on a research consortium that looks at a wide range of data that affect schools and students. I’m interested in studying community schools with wrap-around services.
