K-12 educational policy present and past

As a historian appointed in a faculty of education, Jason Ellis researches and teaches about the historical origins of schooling and education. His new book A Class by Themselves: The Origins of Special Education in Toronto and Beyond (University of Toronto Press, 2019), brings special education’s curious past to bear on its constantly contested present. It shows how today’s debates in the field are the product of unresolved disputes that date back to special education’s origins at the turn of the twentieth century.

His current major research project, which was supported by a National Academy of Education/Spencer Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship, is a historical study of schooling in Canadian suburbs. A case study of Etobicoke in metropolitan Toronto, the project examines the relationship schooling bears to social opportunity and income inequality in the suburbs today.
