Rage from within the Machine: Protest Music, Social Justice, and Educational Reform, a Collective Case Study
Giancola, John A., Jr.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Duquesne University
School reform initiatives in the United States have been occurring since the launching of Sputnik by the U.S.S.R. in 1957. These efforts have largely been internal, within school reforms, with little consideration given to external variables such as poverty that affect student achievement. Given the pervasive link between poverty and student achievement, the author argues for an expanded leadership lens which includes social justice. In an effort to learn more about social justice, three socially conscious activist musicians/groups were studied in a qualitative collective case study. The formative influences of the artists were analyzed. The activist activity of the bands was also examined. Six emergent themes were identified from the study of the musicians, and each theme had educational implications. Lastly, suggestions for further research were listed.
