Ryan Pfleger is Senior Policy Research Analyst at UCLA’s Civil Rights Project/Proyecto Derechos Civiles (CRP). His research focuses on racial and class equity at the intersection of education and society. One strand of his research focuses on racial justice in schools, including segregation and racialized discipline. Another strand, motivated by a desire to make scholarship relevant to policymaking, investigates the political uses of data. A third strand examines the promises and problems of using education to address economic inequality and poverty.

Before coming to CRP, Ryan worked for the Strategic Data Project at Harvard University, Newark Public Schools, the National Education Policy Center, and as an independent research consultant. He received a doctoral degree in Educational Foundations, Policy, and Practice at the University of Colorado-Boulder.

Ryan attended public schools in Atlanta, Georgia that were partly racially integrated through busing and magnet school policies. These experiences provide personal perspectives to his research on segregation and schools. Ryan is currently working on studies of teacher diversity, student demographics and school segregation in California.
