"Socializing" Music Education
Elliott, David J.
Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, v6 n4 p60-95 Dec 2007
While educators in other fields have made significant strides in incorporating issues of social justice in their foundations and curricula, and while a few music education theorists have labored to move everyone in this direction, music education lags behind. Hence the author's plan for this paper. First, the author reflects on the concept of social justice in terms of several facets, strands, or dimensions. Second, he discusses this concept in relation to selected social movements. Third, the author examines the work of two music educators/community musicians whose efforts illustrate aspects of music education as-and-for social justice. Lastly, he offers some suggestions for rethinking and "practicizing" music teaching and learning as/for social justice. (Contains 10 notes.)
