Race, Diversity, and Educational Policy

The faculty members hired for these positions are strongly rooted in K–12 educational policy, and will concentrate research on two closely related areas:

  1. K–12 policy and school reform related to educational inequality
  2. K–12 student context, community collaboration and policy impacts

These research agendas will address the intersections of educational policy, racial inequities, and immigration policy, particularly as they affect the state of California. When research projects are completed, there will be special efforts to deliver the resulting intellectual capital in useful forms to the appropriate communities and audiences, and to inject the all too frequently absent voices of communities of color into local, state, and federal education policy discussions.
