Leah Faw’s scholarship explores issues of educational policy at the intersections of schools and cities, families, labor, and culture. Her dissertation explored homeschooling through the lens of mothers’ labor and their roles as educators; Faw has previously published on district hopping, feminist educational history, and the representation of schooling in popular culture. Faw is the co-chief emerita of the Berkeley Review of Education (BRE) and has worked as a researcher on the Central Valley School Discipline Learning Project, a statewide qualitative study that examined school discipline, climate, and culture across California. Faw received her PhD from the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Education.
