Abstract

Schools are a microcosm of society and often tasked with fixing society’s ills. We need to explore the purpose of education and the place of educators not only to prepare young people to gain the best qualifications they can but also to challenge ourselves as educators and our young charges to be active citizens with enough knowledge about society and citizenship to shape tomorrow’s world. Recent world events have given educators a push towards addressing issues around racial justice and equity. Although this shift is rife with complexity, some schools and groups are actively addressing the issues with students in practical and powerful ways.
