I am a sociologist of education focused on structural responses to diversity within schools and the social psychological implications of diversity for youth’s outcomes. The first strand of my research explores the placement of students into special education, a structural response to distinctive learners. The second strand explores teacher merit pay programs, an institutional response to the lower average achievement levels of youth distinctive from the dominant majority, such as poor students.
