Dorinda Carter Andrews is an associate professor in the department of teacher education at Michigan State University. She received her Ed.D. in Learning and Teaching from Harvard University. Her research focuses on educational equity, with a particular emphasis on African-American student achievement in urban and suburban schools, and critical race praxis with K-12 educators. Her works in various schools led her to study the identities and achievement patterns of African-American students and how to build culturally inclusive learning environments where staff and students are focused on being more culturally responsive. She assists schools in meeting the academic needs of culturally diverse learners and engage in courageous conversations and actions about the implications of race and bias in schools. She is an editor and contributing author of Contesting the Myth of a ‘Post Racial Era’: The Continued Significance of Race in U. S. Education (2013). Her work has appeared in journals such as Harvard Educational Review, Teachers College Record, Journal of Negro Education, and Anthropology & Education Quarterly.
