  • Kayla J. Crawley's research interests include the intersection of race and education policy, school discipline and the school-to-prison pipeline. Her Master's thesis focuses on the historical underpinnings of school discipline policy in Virginia, and the barriers to reform. Her dissertation will focus on school discipline policy alternatives in New Jersey, using Karate dojos as a comparative case. She earned her B.A. in political science from the University of Pennsylvania.
