Matthew Shaw

Matthew's research focuses on researching constitutionally permissible ways that federal and state governments can reduce educational inequity and investigating the forms of evidence necessary to sustain such approaches.  His interests extend to affirmative action in higher education, the provision of free and appropriate public education for students with disabilities, the school experiences of religious and LGBTQ youth, and how educational pluralism creates dilemmas and opportunities for negotiating these differences. Before pursuing his doctorate, Matthew clerked for a United States District Judge and practiced civil and criminal law in Atlanta. He holds a Juris Doctor from Columbia University, a Master of Education from Harvard, and a Bachelor of Arts in Romance Languages and History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
