This book answers key questions regarding social justice in education. Its central theme is how the education system, through its organization and practices, is implicated in the realisation of just or unjust social outcomes. In particular, the writers examine the ways in which the identities of individuals and groups are formed and transformed in schools, colleges and universities. The book contains examples drawn from early years through to higher education. It has a dual focus, addressing: * theoretical debates in social justice, including how the concept of social justice can be understood, and theoretical issues around social capital, and class and gender reproduction * the formation of learner identities focusing on how these are differentiated by class, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and (dis)ability. Carol Vincent has assembled a wide-ranging collection of lucidly argued essays by a panel of internationally respected contributors. The authors draw on their current and recent research to inform their writing and so theory is balanced with extensive empirical evidence. Therefore the debates continued here have implications for policy and practice, as well as being theoretically and analytically rich. This book will provide unrivalled coverage of the subject for researchers, academics, practitioners and policymakers in education.

Few would deny that getting ahead is a legitimate goal of learning, but the phrase implies a cruel hierarchy: a student does not simply get ahead, but gets ahead of others. In These Kids, Kysa Nygreen turns a critical eye on this paradox. Offering the voices and viewpoints of students at a “last chance” high school in California, she tells the story of students who have, in fact, been left behind. Detailing a youth-led participatory action research project that she coordinated, Nygreen uncovers deep barriers to educational success that are embedded within educational discourse itself. Struggling students internalize descriptions of themselves as “at risk,” “low achieving,” or “troubled”—and by adopting the very language of educators, they also adopt its constraints and presumption of failure. Showing how current educational discourse does not, ultimately, provide an adequate vision of change for students at the bottom of the educational hierarchy, she levies a powerful argument that social justice in education is impossible today precisely because of how we talk about it.

"Many teachers enter the profession with a desire to "make a difference." But given who most teachers are, where they come from, and what pressure they feel to comply with existing school policies, how can they take up this charge? Practice What You Teach follows three different groups of educators to explore the challenges of developing and supporting teachers' sense of social justice and activism at various stages of their careers: White pre-service teachers typically enrolled in most teacher education programs, a group of new teachers attempting to integrate social justice into their teaching, and experienced educators who see their teaching and activism as inextricably linked. Teacher educator Bree Picower delves into each of these group's triumphs and challenges, providing strategies and suggestions for all teachers along with her in-depth analysis. By understanding all these challenges, pre-service and in-service teachers, along with teacher educators, will be in a better position to develop the kind of political analysis that lays the foundation for teacher activism. This timely resource helps prepare and support all educators to stand up for equity and justice both inside and outside of the classroom and offers a more nuanced portrait of what the struggle to truly "make a difference" looks like"-- Provided by publisher.

Identity Diversity And Teaching For Social Justice

In recent times, educational reformers have proposed ways of using education to reduce inequality, overcome discriminatory values and attitudes, and alleviate social problems. An increasing number of language theorists and practitioners contends that in order to reduce inequality it is essential to address the personal, cultural, and political implications of language teaching. Awareness of these factors activate the need to gain deeper insight into the personal and professional nuances of teachers' lives. The gap between sociolinguistic theory and educational practice points to the fact that linguists and educationists themselves carry the prejudices of particular social, ideological, cultural and geographical backgrounds. Who teaches what to whom, why and how affects curricular decisions which can thus become fraught with political allegiances; in this way the non-neutrality of language pedagogy is confirmed. Drawing from a suite of data sources the book explores the following questions: Do teachers' autobiographical experiences shape their professional identities? Does subscription to counter-hegemonic ideologies impact teachers' personal and professional positionality and authority? What contributions can feminist theorising make to language teaching in socially diverse classrooms? Through an exploration of these questions, the book gestures towards an imperative to re-think educative and pedagogic relationships and the politics of difference and dialogue in demographically diverse classrooms that subscribe to social redress agendas.

"Once again Morwenna Griffiths has produced a book on an important topic that speaks to theorists and practitioners alike. Read it." Professor Alison Assiter, University of the West of England, Bristol. "This is a must read for anyone who wants to be provoked and supported toward action and change in education." Professor Marilyn Johnston, College of Education, Ohio State University, USA. "a thoroughly engaging text" British Journal of Educational Studies "Socrates said we can't teach anyone anything, but only help them to think - that's what this book did for me and that's why I liked this book and would recommend it to my students, my friends and my colleagues. Unlike the majority of academic books, I found myself treating it like a novel and saving it up to read before I went to sleep at night, reading it more slowly as it got near the end - not wanting it to be finished. I liked it because it resonated with many of my experiences over the years and reminded me that I'm not alone in finding the struggle for social justice in education hard - but passionately worthwhile." InService Education Social justice is a verb. This book puts forward a view of social justice as action orientated rather than as a static theory. Complex discussions of difference, equality, recognition, and redistribution are made accessible and relevant to issues of class, race, gender, sexuality and disability. Interwoven with the discussion are compelling individual accounts of the pleasures and pains, the pitfalls and glittering prizes to be found in education - told by individuals coming from a diversity of social, economic, and ethnic backgrounds. The second part of the book includes examples of successful interventions in real situations, related to self-esteem, empowerment, partnership, and the initiation of individual and joint action to improve social justice in education. The discussion is kept open through 'answering back' sections by educators committed to social justice: Deborah Chetcuti, Max Biddulph, Ghazala Bhatti, Roy Corden, Melanie Walker, Jon Nixon and Kenneth Dunkwu.
