The Gevirtz Graduate School of Education, the Department of Education, and the Chicano Studies Institute present Dr. Oscar Jimenez-Castellanos, Associate Professor of Education Policy and Evaluation at Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, Arizona State University, giving the talk “Intersection of Language, Class, Ethnicity, and Policy: Towards Disrupting Inequality for English Language Learners.”

This event is free and open to the public. A light lunch will be provided; to attend, rsvp by May 9 to nina@education.ucsb.edu.

Dr. Jimenez-Castellanos will present a conceptual framework for understanding the multi-layered educational inequality encountered by low-income, Spanish speaking students in Arizona K-12 public schools. The framework merges intersectionality and policy analysis to understand educational inequality as a function of intersecting educational policies. In addition, it provides an alternative to the Arizona model that seeks to interrupt inequality.
