Dr. Jill Williams, Associate Research Social Scientist with SIROW, recently co-authored an article published in the online forum of Environment and Planning C: Society and Space.  Based on a collaborative research project with public school teachers and Dr. Sara Tolbert from the UA's College of Education, the article examines the big and small ways teachers resist educational policies that are harmful to their students. From everyday acts of resistance to large scale walk-outs, the piece encourages the audience to pay attention to the range of ways teachers work to create positive educational environments for their students.
