Respect Differences? Challenging the Common Guidelines in Social Justice Education
Sensoy, Özlem; DiAngelo, Robin
Democracy & Education, v22 n2 Article 1 2014
In social justice education, it is common to establish guidelines for classroom discussions. We examine the limits of these guidelines in achieving the goals of social justice education, arguing that they are not adequately responsive to power relations. Rather than creating a supportive space for dialogue, these guidelines can actually interfere with achieving social justice education goals. We also describe our efforts to engage alternative strategies for responding to power in the social justice classroom.
