Educators on Diversity, Social Justice, and Schooling
Educators on Diversity, Social Justice, and Schooling identifies categories of privilege and marginalization in the “master narrative” of social discourse and works to bring equity into classrooms across Canada. This timely text challenges students to question the power relations that value one group’s system of knowledge over another and brings this to bear on the classroom environment.
This volume features contributions by educators from diverse disciplinary backgrounds and includes chapter-end key questions, additional resources for more information, and suggested activities to engage students in critical thought and to ground concepts of diversity and social justice in practical application. Students in undergraduate and graduate education studies, curriculum studies, and foundational studies programs will value the combination of theoretical and practical knowledge that this collection puts forth to foster a new generation of inclusive educators.

“Reading this book feels like listening in on educators’ conversations about what it means to work for social justice in schools. Including perspectives from both new and experienced educators working in a wide range of contexts with groups of students with diverse histories of oppression, this book is not about what should be done—it is a candid look at what educators who care about social justice are doing and trying to do.”
