About Mary Poplin
Mary Poplin is a professor in the School of Educational Studies at Claremont Graduate University. She has been both the Dean and Director of Graduate Teacher Education at various times. In K-12 education she studies highly effective teachers in low-performing urban schools.
In 1993, after having been a feminist, multiculturalist and Marxist, Mary became a follower of Christ. In 1996, she worked for two months with Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta to understand why she said their work was “religious work and not social work.”
From that experience she began to explore the academic and social repercussions of the various feminist and justice movements. In the arena of higher education, Poplin examines four major worldviews – material-naturalism, secular humanism, pantheism, and Judeo-Christianity – and explores their implications for human behavior and their evidence for their truth. She also argues that the secular university excludes any serious work on principles of Judeo-Christian thought in the various disciplines.
Her recent books include Finding Calcutta in 2008; Is Reality Secular in 2014; Christianity and the Secular Border Patrol, 2017; Highly Effective Teachers of Vulnerable Students, 2019.
