Bio


Jared Furuta is a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford's Center for Philanthropy and Civil Society, where his research focuses on how educational institutions are culturally constructed in response to changing social norms, conceptions, and taken-for-granted assumptions about education. His past research has examined global changes in national high stakes exams, school tracking, national assessments, and U.S. college admissions policies, and his work has appeared in Sociology of Education, Social Forces, and Comparative Education Review. His current work focuses on long-term changes in systemic educational reform, as well as the effects of educational institutions on economic, political, and social outcomes at the national level.
