Social Justice and Cultural Diversity Issues
Harley, Debra A.; Alston, Reginald J.; Turner-Whittaker, Tyra
Rehabilitation Education, v22 n3-4 p237-248 2008
Early definitions of cultural diversity focused primarily on race/ethnicity, with subsequent inclusion of age, gender, sexual orientation, class, religion, geography, and a combination of positionalities. More recently, social justice has resurfaced as a component of cultural diversity to explain experiences of people of color, women, and marginalized groups. This article examines the movement to include cultural diversity and social justice in rehabilitation education, and offers a model for curriculum development in light of the new CORE standards.
