ECE SIG 2019 Paper Award Winner

Jihae Cha

Jihae "Jay" Cha is a doctoral fellow at the International and Comparative Education program at Teachers College, Columbia University. Jihae’s research interests examine the intersection of education quality, sense of belonging, and gender, and the ways in which they influence 

students' academic motivation and performance in conflict-affected contexts. Jihae's dissertation research explores the schooling experiences of refugee children in Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya, and the different factors that contribute to their school persistence and dropout in displacement. Moving away from deficit discourses that emphasize the vulnerability, passivity, and powerlessness of the displaced populations, Jihae aims to take a balanced approach that explores both challenges and opportunities that exist in refugee education.

 

Jihae received her M.A. in International Educational Development from Teachers College with a concentration in International Humanitarian Issues and a B.A. in International Studies from Ewha Womans University.
