Randall Clemens is an Assistant Professor at St. John’s University. He received his B.A. in English from University of Maryland at College Park and his M.S. in Supervision and Administration from Johns Hopkins University. He served as a high school English teacher at Bladensburg High School, a school located near the District of Columbia. Randy worked as a research assistant with Dr. Bill Tierney, where he is writing his dissertation about African American and Latino male high school students living in a low-income neighborhood. The ethnography examines the role of cultural heterogeneity on education outcomes; in other words, how do teens interpret and use a plurality of cultural beliefs and practices present in a neighborhood, and how does their use affect academic achievement?
