University of Colorado Boulder

Terrenda White is an Assistant Professor of Education Policy and Practice at the University of Colorado Boulder. Her work is grounded in sociology of education, and currently explores the impact of choice and competition on teachers’ instructional practices, particularly multicultural practices for diverse students. Her latest project examines the organizational conditions of charter schools with chronically low or high rates of teacher turnover, including voluntary and involuntary departures by teachers of color. Dr. White’s most recent work examines racially diverse charter schools, including the mechanisms these schools use to maintain diverse populations and the manner of school practices employed to foster meaningful integration. Dr. White is a former elementary school teacher, a first generation college graduate, and one of the inaugural recipients of the Bill Gates Millennium Scholarship in 2000. Her dissertation earned the National Academy of Education fellowship in 2013-2014.
