EDS355H1: Social Justice in Education


This course enables students to develop an understanding of historical and contemporary issues relating to social justice in education. The course builds an anti-oppressive praxis for working in diverse educational contexts, from classrooms and schools to state institutions and non-governmental organizations. The course approaches oppression as an outcome of interrelated structures co-constructed by race, ethnicity, disability, gender, sexuality, class, nationality, and age, focusing on the ways in which these intersect and influence one another. Students will develop and apply research skills in the design and implementation of a social action initiative relating to an equity, diversity, or social justice issue.
