This is an opportunity to gather with our school communities on a topic of widespread, long-standing importance for all of us, and to reflect on how we can center equity in schooling.

Dr. Posey-Maddox is an Associate Professor of Educational Policy Studies at UW-Madison. She is also an affiliate of the Department of Afro-American Studies, the Department of Sociology, and the Institute for Research on Poverty. Posey-Maddox’s research and teaching interests are focused on urban and suburban education; education and urban policy; families and schools; and qualitative research methods. In her research she seeks to understand: 1) how social inequities linked to race, class, and place shape the school and community experiences of parents, students, and teachers and 2) how individuals and groups contribute to the production, reproduction, or challenging of educational inequities in their choices and everyday actions.
