Dr. Jennifer Jellison Holme is an Assistant Professor of Educational Policy and Planning in the Department of Educational Administration. Her research agenda is centered on the politics and implementation of educational policy, with two major areas of focus: 1) the implementation of accountability policies, including test-driven accountability measures (exit exams and NCLB) as well as market-driven accountability reforms (charter schools and school choice); and 2) the implementation of policies designed to foster greater equity and diversity in schools, particularly school desegregation policy. Her work has been published in The Harvard Educational Review (2002) and Equity and Excellence in Education (2005). She is currently conducting a study of Californias high schools organizational and instructional responses to the state's exit examination requirement.
