Eran Tamir is an affiliated scholar at the Mandel Center. A sociologist and an educational policy analyst, his research focuses on the social context of educational policy, teacher certification policy, program evaluation, teacher careers in religious and urban public schools, and the politics of education reform.
At the Mandel Center Eran directed the Choosing to Teach Study, a collaborative research project comparing new teachers’ decisions to teach in Jewish, Catholic, and urban public schools, and the DeLeT Longitudinal Project, which tracked DeLeT teacher fellows from Brandeis University and Hebrew Union College in Los Angeles, focusing on the personal, social, and organizational factors that shape their career choices.
As part of his additional line of research, Eran recently published Staying above the fray: Framing and conflict in the coverage of education policy debates on how the mass media help shape debates over educational policy in American Journal of Education.
