Loder-Jackson, Tondra L.
Associate Professor - Educational Foundations
I teach courses that primarily address the topics of social foundations of education, educational policy and politics, and social movements and education.
I have researched and published extensively regarding topics related to urban education, Birmingham’s civil rights and education history, life course perspectives on African American education, and home, school, and community relations.
I serve in local and national organizations dedicated to advancing urban education and quality of life, diversity and equity, and African American education.
I admire the courage, sacrifice, and tenacity of leaders who dedicate their lives to advancing social justice and advocating for those deemed to be the proverbial “least of these” in our society.
