Brittany Fox-Williams

City University of New York, Lehman College

Fox-Williams will work on a book examining trust as an overlooked dimension of racial inequality in education. Her mixed-methods study draws on longitudinal data from the New York City Department of Education and 90 interviews conducted in NYC public high schools to investigate the racial dynamics of trust in schools and to identify strategies for fostering trusting school climates for racially minoritized youth.
