Background 

Dr. Pulido’s research is interdisciplinary and works to expand the scholarly literature in the fields of education, youth culture, and Latina/o Studies by examining how youth navigate schooling through their particular social and cultural lenses. Her research provides an alternative perspective to much of the recent literature on urban schooling framed by a discourse surrounding testing, standardization of curriculum, and accountability and instead, focuses on developing an understandings of how youths’ multi-layered identities converge and divergewith the processes of schooling in ways that affect academic achievement.
