Face-to-Face over Race: Personal Challenges from Instituting a Social Justice Perspective in Our Teacher Education Program
Moule, Jean; Waldschmidt, Eileen
Teacher Education and Practice, v16 n2 p121-142 Sum 2003
The authors, one African American and one white, use personal narrative and dialogue to examine the process of implementing a social justice perspective into a teacher education program. The process reported in this article unearthed issues related to race that caused unexpected tensions among a small faculty. For the white educator, this process entailed continuing a critical self-examination of her own racial identity development. For the African American faculty member, the process proved particularly stressful and isolating, yet led to an increased understanding of the nature of institutional racism. The authors' hope is that through sharing our struggles around race and social justice, others will be encouraged to begin or continue such transformative journeys.
