Fordham Assistant Professor, Liz Stosich, Ed.D. to Speak at SLU


Dr. Liz Stosich to Speak on School Leaders and Accountability

The School of Education’s Education Lecture Series will present a talk by Fordham University Assistant Professor Elizabeth Leisy Stosich, Ed.D., at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, May 3, in Busch Student Center 254 .

Dr. Stosich will present, “Leaders Respond to Standards-based Accountability Policies: Crafting Coherence Between the Common Core and Teacher Evaluation.” This talk is based on two recent studies she conducted to explore how leaders respond to multiple standards-based accountability policies--the Common Core and teacher evaluation--and the implications of their efforts for improving the quality of instruction and student learning. Findings from both studies suggest that the introduction of new policies may detract from rather than reinforce attention to academic standards.


Dr. Stosich joined the faculty of the Educational Leadership, Administration, and Policy Division at Fordham University in 2017. Previously she was a Research and Policy Fellow at the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education (SCOPE). She began her career in education as an elementary school teacher in Oakland, CA. She holds a B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley, an M.A. from the University of San Francisco, as well as an Ed.M. and Ed.D. from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

The series is co-sponsored by the School of Education and Office of the Vice President for Research.
