Deborah Loewenberg Ball and Felice Levine release AERA statement on hateful acts in Charlottesville


On August 18, 2017, Deborah Ball, in her role as president of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), joined AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine in releasing a statement on the hateful acts in Charlottesville, Virginia, that took place on August 12, 2017. The statement reflects on the ways those hateful acts “make visible how White supremacy, racism, antisemitism, religious persecution, homophobia, and xenophobia continue to permeate our society, but also remind us of the critical importance of studying, analyzing, and broadly communicating about these patterns and structures.” Read the full AERA statement here.

TeachingWorks also released a statement condemning the hateful acts. That statement can be viewed here.

Deborah Loewenberg Ball is William H. Payne Collegiate Professor; Arthur F. Thurnau Professor
