Sarah A. Cordes
Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership
School Leadership
Policy, Organizational, & Leadership Studies
Sarah Cordes is an Assistant Professor in Educational Leadership at Temple University. Her research and teaching interests are in the areas of education and urban policy, school finance, and applied quantitative methods. Her research focuses on the ways in which the urban context, including neighborhoods, housing, and charter schools, affect student outcomes. In particular, her current work explores the spillover effects of NYC charter schools on nearby public school students, the effects of residential and school mobility on student performance, and how changes in school resources influence parents' investments in their children's education. In other ongoing work, she is examining the effects of housing vouchers on student performance. She is a recent recipient of the C. Lowell Harris Dissertation Fellowship awarded by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy for her work on the relationship between school resources and parental investments. Read More
Maia Bloomfield Cucchiara, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Urban Education
Urban Education
Policy, Organizational, & Leadership Studies
Maia Cucchiara is an Associate Professor of Urban Education at Temple University. Her research interests fall into three often-overlapping categories. First, she is interested in urban education policy and particularly in the intersections between policy assumptions and discourses, issues of race and class, and people’s lived experiences. Second, she studies family-school relations, with a focus on how class shapes parents’ experiences with urban schools and their children’s education more broadly. Third, she is interested in the impact of urban development and revitalization on public education and the implications for disadvantaged students.  Cucchiara is the author of Marketing Schools, Marketing Cities:  Who Wins and Who Loses When Schools Become Urban Amenities(University of Chicago Press, 2013).  http://www.press.uchicago.edu/ucp/books/book/chicago/M/bo15112913.html. Her current project, an ethnographic study of low-income mothers’ experiences with parenting education, is funded by a postdoctoral fellowship from the National Academy of Education/Spencer Foundation.

My research focuses on gender and schooling outcomes; men, boys and masculinity; sociology of higher education; and applied research methods. I am particularly interested in issues of access and equity in the educational pipeline as they are informed by gender, race, class, and the intersection of these social locations. My research agenda has been driven by reoccurring questions related to what we know about the social context of identity and how institutions (e.g., schools, college and universities, families, and communities) and policy (e.g., education reform, gender-based instruction and schools) are implicated in academic and social outcomes. I’ve had the opportunity to work with inspiring colleagues and graduate students who continue to refine my work and its impact. Currently, I have funding from the National Science Foundation for the project, STEMing the tide: Exploring factors related to males of color interest, engagement and achievement in mathematics and science. This project will facilitate the dissemination of the most recent research about identity and it relationship to science and mathematics achievement for boys and young men of color. Read More
