Guest Speaker

Dr. Kevin Henry, Assistant Professor of Education Policy Studies and Practice at the University of Arizona’s College of Education

Dr. Kevin Lawrence Henry, Jr.’s program of research revolves around two central, interrelated questions. The first critically examines how power and dominance shape and structure educational policies, practices, and reforms. The second is concerned with how educational actors understand, resist, reconstitute and transform educational fields to be more equitable and socially just. His research pushes the boundaries ofunderstanding state policies on school choice and addresses issues of race, access and poverty in the educational setting.
