Reducing Inequality Network (RIN) Scholar
August Smith is a first-year graduate student in sociology at the Graduate Center, CUNY. Their research thus far has focused on the racial education gap in Georgia high schools. Their future work will continue to look at the racial and class education gaps as well as the ways that white supremacy, heteropatriarchy, and capitalism are bolstered through classroom best practices and certain pedagogical choices. They will also look at ways that this phenomenon can be subverted in order to promote more equitable and liberated classrooms.
