Educator Support for Gender Policies in Education
In this experimental study, we are evaluating factors that relate to educators' support for anti-trans gender policies in education. Specifically, we are evaluating support for policies that have been proposed or implemented in the U.S. including policies restricting bathroom access, policies restricting athletic participation, and policies restricting name and pronoun choices for students based on sex assigned at birth.
This project is funded by a policy grant from APA Division 15.
How To QuantCrit
This book project, led by co-author Dr. Wendy Castillo, will be published as an open-access book by Routledge. It aims to provide users of data in education with practical skills to rethink how they interpret and use education data from the perspective of QuantCrit. QuantCrit brings Critical Race Theory to quantitative methods, and this book will be among the first practical guides to using it in education.
This project is supported by the William T. Grant Foundation and the Spencer Foundation.
LGBTQ+ Affirming Counselor Education
In this project, we are working with LGBTQ+ community members, as well as with counselor educators and counselors-in-training to understand LGBTQ+ affirming counselor education. We are investigating how LGBTQ+ people seek and find affirming care, and what their experiences are in counseling. In addition, we are investigating how counselors-in-training perceive their training experiences, and how counselor educators understand their role and explain their approaches to training affirming counselors.
This project was funded by the Spencer Foundation.
