Dr. Blissett primarily focuses on the attitudinal and behavioral dimensions of the politics of education policymaking. His current research agenda is comprised of three overlapping fields of study: (1) information, values, and attitudes, (2) democratic structures in education governance (particularly, school boards), and (3) advocacy and social movements. His work includes foci on: citizens’ attitudes towards school choice and charter schools; student anti-racism campaigns; public school board member attitudes; school board elections; unions; and causal reasoning in policymaking. In the end, how can we, as citizens and change-makers, work to understand both our own and others’ perspectives and work through conflicts in order to implement policies that do the most good? His research methods are primarily quantitative with a focus on computational social science (including text analysis), particularly through R, Stata, SPSS, and Python.
