Dr. Siegel-Hawley's research interests include examining the relationship between school and residential segregation, regional school desegregation strategies and the role of school choice in either promoting or exacerbating segregation. She asks the question, "What could we accomplish if we were more intentional about integration?"
Her research examines the scope and dynamics of school segregation and resegregation in U.S. metropolitan areas, along with policies for promoting intentionally integrated schools and communities. She has published numerous articles dealing with these topics in journals like Teachers College Record, the Harvard Educational Review, Educational Researcher and the Urban Review. She is also the author of two books, When the Fences Come Down: 21st Century Lessons from Metropolitan School Desegregation (UNC Press, 2016) and A Single Garment: Creating Intentionally Diverse Schools that Benefit All Children (Harvard Education Press, 2020). Siegel-Hawley teaches courses examining how and why equal educational opportunity is distributed so unequally across urban, suburban and exurban districts.
