Dr. Jeynes is one of the nation’s leading researchers on the influence of religiosity, attending religious schools, Bible literacy, character education, family structure, and parental involvement. He has conducted meta-analyses and examined nationwide data sets examining each of these issues. His research has divulged, among other things, that when African American and Latino students are religious and from intact families, the achievement gap with white students disappears. He is heavily involved, along a number of dimensions, in getting the Bible as Literature taught in the public schools.

Dr. Jeynes is a Professor of Education at California State University, Long Beach and has graduate degrees from Harvard University and the University of Chicago. He graduated first in his class from Harvard University and received the Rosenberger Award at the University of Chicago for being named as his cohort’s most outstanding student. He has approximately 165 academic publications, including 100+ articles, 14 books, and 49 book chapters. His articles have appeared in journals by Columbia University, Harvard University (two Harvard journals), the University of Chicago, Cambridge University, the London School of Economics, Notre Dame University, and other prestigious academic journals.

 He is a well-known public speaker having spoken in nearly every state in the country and in every inhabited continent. He has spoken for the White House, the US Department of Justice, the US Department of Education, the US Department of Health & Human Services, the National Press Club, UN delegates, members of Congress, the Acting President of South Korea, the largest church in the world in Seoul, Korea, Harvard University, Cambridge University, Oxford University, Columbia University, Duke University, Notre Dame University, Peking University, and many other well known universities. He has spoken for the G.W. Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations and interacted with the first of these presidents. He has also spoken for former members of the Clinton administration. He has served as a consultant and/or speech writer for many prominent U.S. government leaders, including several presidential candidates.
He has been a consultant for the US, EU, UN, and several G20 governments. His 4-point plan presented to the Acting President of South Korea passed the Korean Parliament and became the core of that nation’s 1998 economic stimulus legislation, which helped it emerge from the greatest Asian economic crisis since World War II. As part of the plan, Dr. Jeynes asserted that South Korea should build a high-tech city (which he termed Korea’s Brasilia), which continues to be built and is called Songdo. South Korea grew out of the crisis faster than any other Asian nation with a GDP increase of 22% over the period of the next two years. He also changed the minds of the South Korean leaders by having them direct most of the stimulus package toward the poorer sections of South Korea, rather than toward wealthy corporations. He believed that this would serve the dual purposes of showing love and providing a stronger stimulus to the economy. Dr. Jeynes has been interviewed or quoted by the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the London Times, the Associated Press (AP), CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, Al Jazeera, US News & World Report, Newsweek Japan, and many other media outlets. His work has been cited and quoted numerous times by the U.S. Congress, the British Parliament, the EU, and many State Supreme Courts across the United States. Dr. Jeynes has worked with and spoken for the Harvard Family Research Project. He received the “Distinguished Scholar Award” from his present university, the California State Senate, and the California State Assembly. He was given the “Distinguished Achievement Award” from an arm of the American Educational Research Association. He is also a Senior Fellow for the Witherspoon Institute in Princeton, New Jersey. Dr. Jeynes wrote the #1 and #2 all-time most cited articles in the over half century history of the journal Urban Education. He also wrote the #1 all-time most cited article in the 50 year history of the journal Education & Urban Society. He periodically writes columns in the Orange County Register, the nation’s 14th largest newspaper. Dr. Jeynes also gained admission in Who’s Who in the World for the last 10 consecutive years.
