Luis A. Rodriguez is Assistant Professor of Education Leadership in the Department of Administration, Leadership, and Technology at NYU. Dr. Rodriguez’s research primarily uses quasi-experimental and econometric methods to investigate the effect of personnel policies—such as compensation and performance evaluation—on the K-12 teacher workforce. He is particularly interested in identifying policies, programs, and practices capable of sustaining an equitable distribution of diverse and highly qualified teachers supporting students from traditionally disadvantaged backgrounds.
Peabody challenged me. Peabody changed my professional trajectory. The faculty and students at Peabody provided me with the mentorship and the tools to do work that I never envisioned I'd be capable of doing. I now have the privilege generating rigorous research and delivering high-quality teaching that can influence education policy and practice more broadly and, more specifically, my students and the work that they do.
