New appointment – Education Core Studies

Alison Molina-Girón was born and raised in Honduras where she completed her under-graduate studies in special education. After receiving her Masters in inclusive education from the University of Kansas, she joined the Department of Education at the Universidad Pedagógica Nacional Francisco Morazán where she taught courses on inclusive education.

She has worked as a school teacher with distinct populations including low-income and Indigenous students as well as students with disabilities in Honduras, Panama, and United States. Her experiences with students on the margins furthered her interests and commitment to advancing anti-oppressive, and social justice education.

Alison’s SSHRC-funded doctoral research examines the practice of citizenship education in Canada, with a focus on how conceptions of good citizenship, cultural diversity, and inequality are taught in the classroom, and the degree to which this prepares students to be actively engaged citizens in civic and political life.
