Amy Farley is an Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies within the School of Education at the University of Cincinnati. She relies on quantitative and qualitative methods, program evaluation, and policy analysis to explore the impact of policy on students, educators, and educational equity and opportunity. Her substantive research focuses broadly on equity in P-20 education systems and the impact of policies on access and opportunity, including school and university reform, high-stakes data use and measurement, and the disparate impact of policies on certain student and educator populations. 

Before joining the University, Amy was a Strategic Data Fellow through Harvard University’s Center for Education Policy Research, where she worked closely with state and local agencies to conduct research and provide technical assistance regarding the implementation of policies related to standards, educator evaluation, and student assessment. She has published work in several major education journals, including Educational Studies, Harvard Educational Review, and Education Evaluation and Policy Analysis
