Social Justice and Teacher Education: Context, Theory, and Practice
Contribution to Book
International Handbook of Teacher Education, volume 2
Teacher education focused on social justice does not exist in a vacuum. Its theory and practice reside in a global context that can exert considerable influence on its formulation and expression, even as those very contexts also can be influenced by theory and practice as those develop over time. Examining the contextualization of teacher education for social justice with a delineation of its theory and practice is important to advance the field. With that goal in mind, this chapter examines relatively recent scholarship—theoretical and empirical—on the context, theory, and practice of teacher education informed by goals of social justice.
