Faculty & Research
From literacy to college access to the Common Core, Penn GSE's world-class researchers are leading the conversation about critical issues in education.
As a relatively small school of education with a standing faculty of 34, the school has an outsize impact on education policy and practice on a global scale. The School has long been recognized for strength in research on teaching and learning, the cultural contexts of education, language education, qualitative research methods, and practitioner inquiry. In recent years, those strengths have deepened to include national leadership in policy research, urban education, developmental psychology, and quantitative and multi-method inquiry.
