Catching Up with the Hoos

Whitelaw Reid of UVA Today shares this Q&A with former @UVAFootball player Alvin Pearman, who is now a professor at Stanford. Pearman graduated from UVA’s School of Education and Human Development in 2005. After his playing career ended, he went on to earn a master’s degree in education and a Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University. He is now an assistant professor of education in Stanford University’s Graduate School of Education. His research focuses on how poverty and inequality shape the life chances of children, especially in rapidly changing cities. Earlier this month, he  received a national award from the American Educational Research Association, the world’s leading association of scholars examining issues of educational policy and practice, for an article he wrote on gentrification and academic achievement. Pearman was also recently awarded a fellowship to help launch a center focused on urban redevelopment and educational inequality. Read the full interview here.
