Leadership Education and Development for What?: Civic Imagination for a More Just and Democratic Society
Kliewer, Brandon W.; Zacharakis, Jeff
Educational Considerations, v43 n1 p1-3 Fall 2015
When institutions assign meaning to individual rights and distribute resources in ways that shape the life chances of people, if appropriately designed they strengthen social justice aims. Yet the natural outcome of how individuals relate to institutions does not automatically align with justice. Communities are in constant struggle to align the arrangement of social institutions to meet standards of justice. This issue of "Educational Considerations" explores how social justice and leadership education contributes to the capacity of students and community to advance and manage competing claims of justice. This article is a foreword to the issue. It is the hope that this special issue of "Educational Considerations" advances the complexity of issues tied to social justice and the role of higher education.
