Education and the art of social justice

From teaching dance to elementary school students, to using poetry about conflict in the Middle East to facilitate a classroom discussion about difference and acceptance, the arts provide students with opportunities to engage more deeply with their learning process(es), expose injustice, and work towards a more fair and equitable world.

The summer 2013 issue of Our Schools/Our Selves finds educators and students who are using dance, music, poetry and illustration to illuminate the act of learning and to open up space for challenging conversations about race, gender, privilege, and fairness.
