UC Santa Cruz

Ronald David Glass, Ph.D., is a Professor of Philosophy of Education and Director of the UC Center for Collaborative Research for an Equitable California (CCREC). He currently investigates the ethical issues raised by justice-oriented collaborative research methodologies, and he has long focused his philosophic work on education as a practice of freedom, ideological (trans)formation, and the role of education and public learning processes in creating a just, pluralistic democracy. He has also investigated school reform in low-income, racially, culturally, and linguistically diverse communities. Professor Glass’s philosophy of praxis has roots in his Civil Rights and anti-Viet Nam war movement experiences, and his many years working with organizations and aggrieved communities struggling for justice and democracy.
