Lance T. McCready, Ph. D. is Assistant Professor of Urban Education at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto. He received his doctorate in Social and Cultural Studies with a Designated Emphasis in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies from the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. McCready teaches School & Society in the inner city-focused cohort of the Secondary Initial Teacher Education program and teaches graduate course on urban education and gender issues in urban schools. His research and writing focuses on curricular and pedagogical issues in urban education, specifically the “troubles” facing Black male students in urban schools and the experiences of queer youth of color. He is principal investigator of the Culturally Responsive Teaching Practices (CRTP) study of secondary teachers’ understanding and practice of culturally responsive teaching and classroom management, co-investigator for an evaluation of the Many Men, Many Voices HIV/AIDS prevention and education program at the Black Coalition for AIDS Prevention, and a Lead Researcher on the Black and Latino Male School Intervention Study (BLMSIS) of single-sex schools based at New York University’s Metro Center. A consistent theme throughout all of these projects is mobilizing feminist theories of intersectionality to understand and make policy recommendations to better the lives of racialized children and youth.
