About the Author
Meredith I. Honig is a professor of Education Policy, Organizations, and Leadership at the University of Washington (UW), Seattle. Her research, teaching, and district partnerships focus on the interruption and rebuilding of inequitable school district practices and systems to ensure high-quality teaching and learning for each student, especially those historically underserved by public schools. Her work recognizes that barriers to educational equity are systemic, that school district central office leaders are in strategic positions to lead for systemic changes important to such results, and that they would benefit from new knowledge and support for their leadership.

Dr. Honig has examined and supported district leadership of various reform strategies, including: school-community partnerships, new small autonomous schools initiatives, data-informed decisionmaking, and districtwide teaching and learning improvement efforts. Her findings have been published in such journals as Educational Researcher, the American Educational Research Journal, and Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis and funded by the Wallace Foundation, the Spencer Foundation, the W.T. Grant Foundation, and other sources.

In 2014, Dr. Honig and Lydia R. Rainey established the District Leadership Design Lab (DL2) to enable district leaders to access knowledge and tools to help them lead their own efforts to fundamentally transform their central offices into school support systems. Between 2012 and 2018, Dr. Honig directed the Leadership for Learning (EdD) program, which won the 2016 Exemplary Educational Leadership Program award from the University Council for Educational Administration.

Prior to joining the UW-Seattle faculty, Dr. Honig was an assistant professor and codirector of the Center for Educational Policy and Leadership at the University of Maryland, College Park. She has worked at the California Department of Education and in other state and local youth-serving agencies. She received her AB from Brown University in Educational Studies and Public Policy and American Institutions and her PhD in Educational Administration and Policy Analysis from Stanford University.

Lydia R. Rainey is a research scientist at the UW-Seattle and the director of research for DL2. Since 2000, Dr. Rainey has researched ways to design and implement equitable school systems. Her recent research has focused on how education leaders in both central offices and schools implement policies that call for deep changes in their day-to-day work and how they use various forms of data and evidence in their decision-making. She approaches this work using traditional qualitative and quantitative techniques, as well as design-based research partnerships.

Prior to joining DL2, she worked with the UW-Bothell's Center on Reinventing Public Education, the UW-Seattle's Center for Teaching and Policy, and the City of Seattle Office of Education. Dr. Rainey has a PhD in Education Policy, Organizations, and Leadership, a master's of Public Administration from the Evans School of Public Affairs, and a BA in Political Economy, all from the UW-Seattle.
