Dorinda Carter Andrews is an associate professor of teacher education. Her research focuses on race and equity in education, with a particular emphasis on black student achievement in urban and suburban schools. Drawing on qualitative methodologies and race-based theories, she studies how the racial and achievement identities and ideologies of black students shape their adaptive and maladaptive behaviors for schooling.
