Fraser-Burgess earned master’s degrees in education and philosophy and a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Miami in Florida. Dr. Fraser-Burgess joined the faculty of Ball State University in 2005.Her primary research interest is in principles and practices of democratic education. Philosophically, this cluster of moral, political, and epistemological questions implies an ideal of schools as deliberative spaces. A democratic society rightly values giving pride of place to diversity, critical thinking, and equality of opportunity. This rationale also guides her reflective praxis scholarship of teaching in multicultural and STEM education collaborations across the Ball State campus. Most recently, she has published papers in the Journal of Thought, Educational Philosophy and Theory, and Philosophical Studies in Education and has authored conference papers for American Educational Research Association, the Philosophy of Education Society and American Educational Studies Association. She is 2013 past president of the Ohio Valley Philosophy of Education Society and is currently on the editorial Board of Education Theory. She is also active in the Philosophy of Education Society and the American Association of Practical and Professional Ethics.
