Mallory Lineberger is currently a doctoral student in Educational Policy and Planning at The University of Texas at Austin, where she leverages research in creation of policies that center educational equity and justice for systematically marginalized groups. Her research interests focus on the race and gender power dynamics of policy making around school censorship and decolonizing curriculum.

Mallory’s interest in K-12 education policy is rooted in her fourteen years of experience as an educator. After spending five years teaching high school social studies in Texas public schools, Mallory discovered her passion for using museums and public spaces as her classroom guiding tours for families in Paris, France. Upon her return to Texas, Mallory created distance learning programming for the Bullock Museum and spent six years developing and facilitating educational programming for students and teachers at the LBJ Presidential Library. Most recently Mallory worked in the 87th Texas Legislative session as a policy fellow with The Education Trust and supported the Texas Educational Equity Legislative Coalition’s efforts to fight the whitewashing of history in Texas classrooms.

Mallory has a B.A. in history from Texas A&M University and a M.Ed. from the University of North Texas.
