Britney Jones studies educational policy and instruction, as well as school organization and leadership, with a focus on the creation and preservation of inclusive, relevant, and sustaining spaces for culturally and linguistically diverse students. Her research explores the ways in which schools, school leaders, and educational policies are positioned to support teachers in their efforts to make schools more equitable. After earning her Bachelor’s degree and a Master of Arts in Teaching degree, both from Brown University, she taught and served as a teacher leader/curriculum developer in Brooklyn, New York. Britney received her Ph.D. in Educational Leadership: Learning, Leadership, and Education Policy from the University of Connecticut in 2022. Her dissertation research examines teachers’ sociopolitical consciousness and their understanding of Culturally Relevant Science Teaching. Britney endeavors to not only teach about frameworks for social justice and equity, but to also use such frameworks to inform her own teaching style and course development.
