Department of Public Administration and Policy

  • Dr. Meredith (Walker) Anderson’s research spans Public Policy, Public Administration and Race and Ethnicity. Specifically, her work explores how representation, intersectionality, and equity influence policy outcomes, particularly for minority students. Her recent publications and working papers examine the relationship between representation and teenage pregnancy outcomes, managerial strategies of principals, and assess the influence of intersectional representation on African American male student tracking.

    Meredith is a former Program Evaluator for Baltimore City Public Schools. As a part of the School Evaluation and Accountability (SEA) Effectiveness team, Dr. Anderson contributed to the development of the new evaluation system that measures the effectiveness of teachers and school leaders in Baltimore City. In this role, Dr. Anderson helped facilitate union negotiations for principal and teacher evaluation, conducted statistical analysis related to teacher and principal evaluation, written policy reports, coordinated various district-wide professional developments, and lead the district’s evaluation survey on school leaders. Dr. Anderson has also worked with the Maryland Longitudinal Data System (MLDS) at the Maryland State Department of Education. In this capacity, Meredith was influential in developing educational content for the MLDS Center.
