Dr. Crawford, assistant professor in Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis, earned her doctorate in Educational Theory and Policy with a minor in Comparative and International Education from Penn State University, where she focused on issues affecting educational equity for undocumented students. Her research interests include international immigration and education policy, looking at how educational leaders and teachers advocate for vulnerable students’ access to education, and how education policy intersects with educators’ professional and personal ethical codes.
