Jerry Rosiek is a former high school physics teacher, father of an 11-yea-old daughter, and professor of education at the University of Oregon. His research examines the way institutionalized racism, settler colonial ideologies and heteronomativity mediate policy making and classroom practices. This work challenges common sense conceptions of education reform and asks what kind of knowledge actually enables ambitious and equitable education for all students.
His scholarship has appeared in leading journals in the field of education such as the "Harvard Educational Review," the "Journal of Teacher Education" and "Educational Researcher." He is co-author of the award winning book, "Resegregation as Curriculum: The Meaning of the New Segregation in U.S. Public Schools" (Routledge, 2016). He has been interviewed for reports on NBC Nightly News, MSNBC, as well as in "The New York Times," "The Atlantic," "The Guardian," and many regional newspapers.
