Jeremy Martin

Jeremy’s research explores the role of venture philanthropy in K-12 education. More specifically, he is interested in the role of philanthropic organizations that are founded by or led by people of color. Using political science as a disciplinary framework, his work explores the relationship between institutions and ideologies, investigates elite advocacy in K-12 education settings, and probes the role of Black and Latinx educational entrepreneurs.

His past research projects include a review of parent education program implementation in Los Angeles; a review of culturally responsive and mastery-based education practices in New York City; and a comparative study of educational policy between Norway and the United States. Currently, Jeremy is a research consultant with New York University’s Metropolitan Center for Research on Equity and the Transformation of Schools.

Prior to graduate study, Jeremy worked as a nonprofit professional at the American Council on Education in Washington, D.C., and was an educator working with youth in long-term confinement in North Carolina; Washington, D.C.; and New York City.
