Emily M. Hodge (Ph.D., The Pennsylvania State University) is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Educational Leadership at Montclair State University in New Jersey. Her work uses historical and qualitative methods, as well as social network analysis, to understand the changing nature of strategies for educational equity, including desegregation, detracking, and standards-based reform. Recent projects have explored how teachers negotiated the tension between standardization and differentiation in the context of the Common Core State Standards and the varied strategies state education agencies are using to support standards implementation. Hodge is a recipient of a Small Research Grant and a Conference Grant from the Spencer Foundation. Her research appears in the American Educational Research Journal, Educational Policy, Review of Research in Education, and AERA Open, among others.
