Sponsored by the Graduate School of Education and Allied Professions, Kumashiro will explore classroom examples of teaching for social justice in schools.

As part of the Graduate School of Education and Allied Professions’ (GSEAP) Diversity Lecture Series, internationally recognized scholar and advocate Kevin Kumashiro, PhD, will visit Fairfield University on March 4, 2020 to discuss and explore classroom examples of teaching for social justice in schools.

Since introducing the Diversity Lecture series, GSEAP has hosted experts including Antonia Darder, PhD, and Sonia Nieto, PhD, to discuss topics including building equity with teachers, students, and parents, and culturally responsive teaching.

Kumashiro is an expert on educational policy, school reform, teacher preparation, and educational equity and social justice, with a wide-ranging list of accomplishments and awards as a scholar, educator, leader, and advocate. He is the former dean of the School of Education at the University of San Francisco (2013–17) and he previously served as chair of Educational Policy Studies, interim co-director of the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy, and as director of the AANAPISI (Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution) initiative at the University of Illinois at Chicago. 

Kumashiro has taught in schools and colleges across the United States and abroad, and has consulted for school districts, organizations, and state and federal agencies. He founded the Center for Anti-Oppressive Education and served as director from 2002-2013. He is an award-winning author and editor of ten books including Troubling Education (recipient of the 2003 Gustavus Myers Outstanding Book Award), Against Common Sense: Teaching and Learning Toward Social Justice (now in its third edition), and Bad Teacher!: How Blaming Teachers Distorts the Bigger Picture.
