Know Where You Stand and Stand There: Everyday Advocacy for Children of Diversity
Fennimore, Beatrice S.
Childhood Education, v83 n5 p294 2007
This article reviews ways in which early childhood educators can be advocates for the many children whose diversities bring them face to face with suffering and injustice. Educators' professional advocacy can focus continually on specific ways in which schools or programs should reflect caring and fairness to all children, regardless of circumstance. Strengthened by their persistent efforts in the educational setting, teachers who are advocates will find many ways to express a personal stance on child advocacy in the larger society. Their open and well-established dedication to advocacy can inspire other educators and community members to take a stance on issues involving children and social justice.
