Martha Bradley Dorsey is a Distinguished Doctoral Fellow and Graduate Assistant at the University of Arkansas' Department of Education Reform. Martha graduated with high distinction in Sociology from Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ, after which she obtained a Master of Public Administration at ASU. While in the MPA program, Martha's appointment as a Legislative Intern to the Arizona State Senate led her to employment for the Arizona Legislature in both a program evaluation capacity and as an education research analyst for the Senate, at which time she assisted in drafting the state's landmark charter school legislation. Martha later worked in Kansas' legislative research department, and part of this time was spent on education reform. Martha's keen interest in education reform, and school choice in particular, has motivated her to examine school choice and other reform as a primary driver in improving not only education but also the general condition of the nation. She is also interested in examining how to develop a model of successful thought and behavior for students who are at risk of not achieving their full potential.
