New Project on School Discipline and Teacher Racial Bias


Jason Okonofua, Assistant Professor of Psychology and CRSC-affiliated faculty member, received a grant from the Tides Foundation and Google to “launch an online intervention for more than 100 U.S. school teachers to motivate them to check their biases against African American students before meting out punishment. His approach is the first of its kind.”


The Deep Story of Trump’s America


The San Francisco Chronicle featured CRSC affiliated faculty member Arlie Hochschild’s new book, “Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right.” The book is based on five years of research in right-wing rural Louisiana, where she found that residents feel betrayed by the country’s elites.
