Summary
  • "This Handbook - the first comprehensive review of social justice in education - examines, from multiple perspectives, education theory, research, and practice in historical and ideological context, with an emphasis on social movements for justice. It arrives at a moment when education and educators around the world are strained and in need of support for the deepest and most important purpose of education - to build societies in which people can learn, love, and imagine more and suffer less. Addressing current attacks on public education, it makes the theoretical and conceptual argument that social justice matters, and that it is the lens through which all of what happens in education should be refracted. Each of the nine sections explores a primary theme of social justice and education."
  • "In moving from the rhetoric of despair to one of possibility and praxis, the Handbook of Social Justice in Education takes a first step in a lengthy journey - one that calls for abandoning the safe rhetoric of tolerance and engaging the entangled spaces of race, class, gender, sexuality, disability, and environment through an educational lens. It reflects what it means to work to fulfill such dreams."--BOOK JACKET
