Dr. Tabron received her Ph.D. in Educational Administration and Supervision from Texas A&M University. She is a statistics professor and critical policy analysis expert who studies how systemic racism is perpetuated and sustained through policies, politics, and big data sets. She is committed to helping educational leaders develop an equity-oriented lens and skillset to critically analyze policies and data (national, state, and local) so that their leadership practices and policies do not perpetuate systems of marginalization. She is passionate about increasing literacy in quantitative inquiry among educational leaders from historically underrepresented groups. Her work has been published in the Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, Educational Leadership Review, and Educational Studies. She has presented her work at national and international conferences including the Association of Educational Finance and Policy (AEFP), the National Council of Professors of Education Administration (NCPEA), University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA), and American Educational Research Association (AERA).
