David Stovall, Professor of Educational Policy Studies and African-American Studies

David Stovall teaches at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), and his research interests are critical race theory, concepts of social justice in education, the relationship between housing and education, and the relationship between schools and community stakeholders.

In the attempt to bring theory to action, he has spent the last ten years working with community organizations and schools to develop curriculum that address issues of social justice. His current work has led him to become a member of the Greater Lawndale/Little Village School of Social Justice High School design team, which opened in the Fall of 2005 where he also serves as a volunteer social studies teacher.
