The Winds of Katrina Still Call Our Names: How Do Teachers and Schools Confront Social Justice Issues?
Wynne, Joan T.
Multicultural Education, v15 n2 p50-51 Win 2007
Certainly, individuals in many colleges and public schools address the impact of race, class, and power on schools, yet the institutions as a whole continue, even a year after Katrina, to ignore the imperative to explicitly and consistently deal with these issues. Human justice must become an institutional mantra, not just the conversation of a few. The outrage produced by the continuing neglect and abuse of the citizens of New Orleans, America's citizens, must be addressed. In this article, the author discusses how teachers and schools should confront social justice issues.
