University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign

Adrienne Dixson is Associate Professor of Education Policy, Organization and Leadership at the University of Illinois College of Education. Her primary research interest focuses on educational equity in urban schooling contexts, applying a Critical Race Theory framework. She is interested in how educational equity is mediated by school reform policies in the urban south and is examining school reform in post-Katrina New Orleans, how local actors make sense of and experience those reform policies and how those policies become or are "racialized".
