Dr. Carlos McCray, Associate Professor in our Educational Leadership, Administration, and Policy programs, was recently listed among Noodle’s 67 Influential Educators of 2015.
Demographically, the United States is transitioning to a majority-minority country (in which the number of Latino, African-American, and Asian individuals is becoming greater than that of non-Hispanic whites), and by some accounts, the entering kindergarten class of 2015 already is majority-minority. At the same time, education degrees yearly are overwhelmingly awarded to whites, and to women. McCray’s research delves deeply into race, class, and gender dynamics between educators and students, and explores how embracing cultural diversity and pluralism can improve outcomes. Read more.
The list is comprised of Ed Tech, Education Analysis, Higher Education, and K-12 educators who are innovating the education landscape. Congratulations, Dr. McCray!
