University of Kentucky

Adrienne Dixson is Director of the Education and Civil Rights Initiative and a professor of  Educational Leadership Studies at the University of Kentucky. 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".
