A Walk in My Shoes: Social Justice in Education 10/03/2016

Deeply imbedded within the complexities of American society are issues such as poverty, race relations, gender equity, cultural identity and privilege. These issues arrive in classrooms every day where learners converge from many backgrounds, identities, and abilities. This film touches on the lives and experiences of five dynamic educators whose passion for social justice was forged when they were in school. Their personal accounts bear witness to both the overt and subtle forms of injustice that create critical barriers to quality learning and inclusion. Each person enacted their beliefs in equity, access, and respect in order to provide a just and quality education for the learners they serve.
