Bridging Social Justice and Children's Rights to Enhance School Psychology Scholarship and Practice
Shriberg, David; Desai, Poonam
Psychology in the Schools, v51 n1 p3-14 Jan 2014
This article describes the overlap between the common goals of social justice and children's rights advocates as applied to scholarship and practice in school psychology. We argue that these frameworks overlap a great deal, with a primary distinction being the roots of each approach. Specifically, the origins of social justice movements in school psychology can be traced to multicultural school psychology, whereas the roots of school psychology and children's rights stem more from broader international movements. The potential implications of the similarities and differences are explored through a case study. Finally, recommendations for the next 25 years of social justice and children's rights scholarship and practice are provided.
