Mayrowetz studies the ways in which organizational and institutional factors influence the creation and implementation of educational reforms. While the reforms that he explores are varied, ranging from attempts to change mathematics instruction to the development of "distributed leadership" in schools, to the placement of students with special needs in general education classrooms, one of the recurring motifs in his work is the effects that changes in general education have for special education students and programs and vice versa.
Mayrowetz regularly teaches courses on educational policy and education and the law. While at UIC, he also has taught classes on case study research, instructional reform, the foundations of educational administration, and decision making for school leaders.
