Kyle Beckham

About

A fourth year doctoral candidate in the Graduate School of Education’s program of Race, Inequality and Language in Education (RILE), Kyle's work focuses on the educational environments of alternative schools in California, particularly continuation high schools. More specifically, he studies what it means for students to be labeled perpetual failures and pushed out of comprehensive high schools into new schooling contexts designed to either warehouse, reform, re-engage, discard, and/or empower them. Before graduate school, Kyle was a teacher at Downtown Continuation High School in San Francisco for nine years, co-teaching a variety of interdisciplinary project-based courses.
