Educational Equity and Social Justice

Eunice Merideth

Educational Equity and Social Justice is a five-week, cross-listed course that is designed to explore the challenges and opportunities of teaching with educational equity for social justice. Education does not happen in a vacuum. Any teaching (formal or informal) is influenced by cultural, political, professional, and personal contexts. In educational settings that are increasing diverse, addressing issues of social justice requires both analysis and action: careful analysis as to how we ought to live and learn, and then action as agents of social change to teach what ought to be in a manner that ought to exist in all areas of education. In examining the interaction of persons, their contexts, and education, it is not useful to focus on who has been oppressed the longest or the most. Rather, this course seeks awareness in order to identify change strategies that move from what is and has been to what ought to be.

It is recommended that you contact the instructor before enrolling in an online course. Cross-listed with EDUC 198 and WS 195.

Eunice Merideth is a Professor and Associate Dean of the School of Education
