Description: Social justice has gained momentum in the field of education and many believe that promoting practices that demonstrate a social justice framework are essential to inequalities in education. Learning how to get comfortable with being uncomfortable is essential to being a leader in the field of social justice. Participants will develop an understanding of current research in the field of social justice within education as well as learn new skills to allow them to be agents of social justice within their educational practice. The afternoon session will be spent participating in social justice activities and developing a toolbox of resources to be used in your schools.
