Introduction/What is the Study of Education and Social Justice?

Key concepts that thread through the program include: critical and decolonizing theories and pedagogies, studies of the social and political context of education in its broadest sense, the construction of individual and collective identities, systems and mechanisms of social and cultural reproduction, critical consciousness, and resources, forms of resistance and processes of empowerment.
