Four Educational Myths that Stymie Social Justice
Beswick, Joan F.; Sloat, Elizabeth A.; Willms, J. Douglas
Educational Forum, v72 n2 p115-128 2008
Four myths that underlie persistent, but ineffective, practices in early literacy education are analyzed in this article. Such analysis is essential because literacy disadvantage ultimately is an issue of equity--a matter of social justice. Research shows that these practices can be refuted and that optimal early literacy outcomes are possible for all students when parents, teachers, and school administrators serve as agents of equity.
