Ph.D. Student in Education, admitted Autumn 2014
BioXavier J. Monroe is a PhD candidate in Education Policy and Sociology of Education at Stanford University. His research interests include (a) the translation of policy into practice to improve student opportunities and school transformation, (b) the value of family and community partnerships with schools, and (c) issues of equity and access, particularly within Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education, for underrepresented minorities. Monroe studies aspects of these issues using an interdisciplinary approach, principally with historical and sociological lenses. He has conducted qualitative research in Kano, Nigeria in an effort to examine the Chinese impact on the industrial manufacturing and trade economy of the region. He also conducted research in Michigan schools that concerned pedagogical practices, inquiry based learning, school climate, organizational capacity, and student outcomes. At Stanford, Xavier has worked on mixed-method research projects that have examined research use by policymakers, the effects of summer learning programs on youth, and the importance of parental engagement and empowerment with schools.
Monroe holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and a Bachelor of Arts in History, with Minors in African Studies and Math Education, from the University of Florida. He obtained his Master of Arts in Educational Leadership & Policy from the University of Michigan and recently received his Master of Arts in Sociology from Stanford University. Xavier is both a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow and a Stanford University Diversifying Academia, Recruiting Excellence (DARE) Doctoral Fellow. He was a Florida Academic Scholar, Ronald E. McNair Scholar, and a Horace H. Rackham – Education Scholar Master’s Fellow. Monroe has served as a U.S. House of Representatives page, elementary school instructor, Alachua County Library District Trustee, Putnam-Alachua-Levy Library Cooperative Governor, and a Board Fellow for the United Way of Washtenaw County.

Crystal A. Moore
Ph.D. Student in Education, admitted Autumn 2017
Stanford Student Employee, Institutional Research & Decision Support
Research Associate, Sociology
BioCrystal A. Moore is a third-year doctoral student at the Stanford Graduate School of Education in the programs on education policy, organizational theory and the sociology of education. She works with Linda Darling-Hammond, Ben Domingue, David Labaree and Mitchell Stevens at Stanford. Crystal has an undergraduate degree in public policy from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University and a master’s degree in elementary education from the University of Pennsylvania.
Crystal’s research interests converge at the intersection of race, class, democracy and education, looking at the social, emotional and academic components of student well-being. She draws from theories related to social capital and stratification with an explicit interest in differences based on race, class, geography and language proficiency. Her research projects explore how changing urban demographics impact educational opportunities and outcomes, political and financial support for public education and district success achieving their stated goals. They build on the literature of child development, continuous improvement, effective schools, leadership, positive outliers, social emotional learning, suburbanization, trauma, urbanization and 90/90/90 schools. Racial, ethnic and language politics also are major themes in her research projects.
Crystal’s current scholarship is informed by two decades of experience in education. She is driven by a lifelong passion for developing racially diverse, high performing, urban public schools. For over ten years, she worked as a consultant on a number of school improvement projects, including community schools, independent school equity, individualized instructional plans, new school design and quantitative diversity research. Her areas of practice include change management, continuous improvement, leadership development, school design, and staff training. Her last full-time position was coaching principals for the DC State Superintendent of Education’s Learning Support Network, providing leadership coaching, technical assistance and professional development to four Priority school leaders.
