I am interested in evaluation of large scale, multi-site
initiatives, especially those involving special populations such as
very young children and their families, students with disabilities,
and members of traditionally underrepresented groups. My research
has focused on the use of participatory designs and qualitative and
quantitative methods in these large complex projects. I am also
interested in technical and policy issues surrounding the inclusion

My primary research interest focuses on how issues of race, class
and gender intersect and impact educational equity in urban
schooling contexts. I locate my research within two theoretical
frameworks: Critical Race Theory and Black feminist theories. My
colleague, Celia K. Rousseau-Anderson, and I edited CRT in
Education: All God's Children Got a Song (2006, Routledge) one of
the first book-length texts on CRT in education. Most recently, I
am interested in how educational equity is mediated by school
reform policies in the urban south. more information...
