Assistant Professor of Education


David Rangel is a sociologist of education. He studies the relationship between education and social inequality, with emphasis on the Latinx experience in the United States. In particular, his research examines family-school relations, focusing on how social class, race, ethnicity, and the broader social context structure relations within families, between families, and between families and schools. I use quantitative and qualitative methods to document Latinx parent’s experiences in school settings and understand if, how, and to what extent Latinx parents pass on their educational advantages to their children
