Social Justice in Schools: A Case of Conflicting Values
Higginbottom, Katie; Friesen, Chris
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n142 p120-133 Jul 2013
Cherryvale Secondary School is located in a small, rural city. Mike Randall has been the principal there for three years. Each year principals are required by the school district to devise a School Improvement Plan. In Mike's first year, he chose a social justice goal, focusing on "Student Success on a Case-by-Case Basis." Mike and Cherryvale's teachers have since worked to track what each student defines as success, plan what each student needs to be successful, and monitor progress. This case highlights challenges that arise when Mike decides to reallocate resources to further support this goal by focusing on the most at-risk students.
