Alfredo J. Artiles’ interdisciplinary scholarship examines the paradoxes of educational equity and their consequences in two contexts, namely disability intersections with other sociocultural differences (e.g., race, language, social class, gender) and the implementation of inclusive education across contexts and scales. He aims to understand how justice remedies for one group can create injustices for other groups—e.g., the protections provided by special education can stratify educational opportunities for other groups. Artiles has produced research findings and theoretical refinements, created personnel preparation programs, contributed to advance equity-oriented policies, led national and international technical assistance and research projects, and promoted inclusive educational systems.
Artiles directs the Equity Alliance and was elected AERA Vice President. He is an AERA Fellow and Spencer Foundation/NAEd Postdoctoral Fellow. He served on the White House Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanics and was a Fellow at Stanford’s Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences. Awards include AERA Presidential Citation, Review of Research Award, Mentoring Awards (from AERA, The Spencer Foundation, ASU), Honorary Professor – University of Birmingham (UK), and the Palmer O. Johnson Award. Artiles edits the Teachers College Press book series “Disability, Culture, & Equity.” Recent publications: (with Schuelka, Johnstone, & Thomas) the SAGE Handbook on Inclusion and Diversity in Education; (with Allan), the 2017 World Yearbook of Education: Assessment inequalities (Routledge); NRC report Fostering the Development and Educational Success of Young Language Learners and Dual Language Learners (committee member); and (with Kozleski & Waitoller) Inclusive education: Examining equity on five continents (Harvard Education Press).
