Jane C. Lo is an assistant professor of teacher education in the College of Education. Her work focuses on civic education and empowering students as active participants in democracy.
“My research focuses on the ways in which schooling and classroom practices influence students’ political identity and engagement. Specifically, I’m interested in the ways classroom experiences can empower or disempower students as active participants in our democracy. Given the current political climate, I hope my work on making civic education relevant to all students will help empower young people to make lasting changes for a more equitable society.”
