Editorial Reviews

Review

"While providing theoretical arguments, the handbook provides concrete examples and experiences….this volume is a rich compendium of events; of the works of social movements and activists; and of school and classroom practices that illustrate how social justice can be achieved in education."--Education Review, May 2010

8 of 26 people found the following review helpful By RightThinking on June 29, 2011
Format: Paperback
The handbook contains 52 articles and is divided into nine sections. Each section focuses on an aspect of social justice in education such as theory, international issues, specific groups, teacher training and social justice in practice.

The preface sets the overriding emphasis of the book. It begins with two quotes. The longest one starts, "In our dreams we have seen another world... a world decidedly fairer than the one in which we now live."

This quote of inspiration was written by Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos, who is an outspoken opponent of capitalism, whose politics are characterized as Marxist, and who claims that the neo-liberalism and globalization constitute the "Fourth World War."

The 52 articles by different contributors vary in length and style. Some are personal observations and anecdotes, some deal with theory, and others focus on specific policies and methods. None deals with research of empirically-based research which several contributors contend is part of a corporate global conspiracy.

In the first article, Kenneth Saltmas contends that "In the United States an economic war against youth, the poor, the working class, and people of color has been waged" (p. 1). David Gabbard refers to one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, Benjamin Rush, as one of many in building "the anti-democratic foundation stones of American democracy" (p. 24). He twists Benjamin Rush's call to educate our populace for citizenship and participation by ascribing a 20th century meaning on to the word "prejudice."

Boyles et al. discredit people in our history such as Booker T. Washington, Mortimer Adler, ...Hirsch as perpetuators of injustice because they recommend a "just society through assimilation" (p. 37).
