The Social Justice, Peace, and Environmental Education Standards Project
Andrzejewski, Julie
Multicultural Perspectives, v7 n1 p8-16 Jan 2005
Inspired by the Alaska Native Knowledge Network's "Standards for Culturally Responsive Schools," members of fourteen social justice, peace, and environmental education (SJPEE) special interest groups (SIGs) from the American Educational Research Association (AERA) and several other prominent organizations have been involved in drafting SJPEE "standards" based on research, theoretical perspectives, foundational documents, and models. Ten SIGs have already disseminated drafts to members and beyond to help forge a set of standards, guidelines, or queries representing collective visions for social justice, peace, and ecological sustainability. A project goal is to garner the energy and wisdom of many constituencies to increase visibility, credibility, and accountability for SJPEE in the national educational agenda. In this article, the author describes the development of this SJPEE standards project. (Contains 2 tables and 3 endnotes.)
