Hi, I’m Freddie deBoer. I’m an academic and writer. You can check out my CV or some of my published work with the links above. I work for Brooklyn College in the City University of New York system. I work in Academic Assessment and co-coordinate the Writing Across the Curriculum program. My academic research focuses on measurement of student learning, applied linguistics, and education policy.
I am writing a book about education, genetics, human potential, and the poverty of the concept of equality of opportunity. I am attempting to rescue discussion of human genetics from the pseudoscientific racism and gender essentialism with which they are frequently associated, and to demonstrate that modern genetic science offers the strongest possible argument for socialism. The book is under contract with All Points Books, an imprint of St. Martin’s Press.
It will hearten some, and disappoint others, to learn that my book’s argument is opposed to race science.
