Johnson studies the special education-to-prison pipeline, which she describes as “a complex intersection of race, class, disability, and incarceration” and an example of the use and misuse of race in medical analysis. Her research will result in the creation and dissemination of policy documents to assist educators and medical personnel in recognizing the psychological effects of social inequities such as poverty and racism and offer social support as primary intervention.
