Ladson-Billings
Ladson-Billings, who holds the Kellner Family Distinguished Chair in Urban Education and is a professor with the departments of Curriculum and Instruction, Educational Policy Studies, and Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis, is being recognized for her exemplary contributions to education research and practice.

Ladson-Billings is perhaps best known for her book, “The Dreamkeepers: Successful Teachers of African American Children,” which was first published in 1994 and continues to be used in teacher education programs around the country. Ladson-Billings’ groundbreaking work on culturally relevant pedagogy and critical race theory centers on examining the practices of teachers who are successful with African American students.

Ladson-Billings in December was elected the next President of the National Academy of Education.  Her term will begin in the fall of 2017 and will last four years. 

The AERA Annual Meeting runs April 27 to May 1. The American Educational Research Association is the largest national interdisciplinary research association devoted to the scientific study of education and learning. Founded in 1916, AERA advances knowledge about education, encourages scholarly inquiry related to education, and promotes the use of research to improve education and serve the public good.
