Only 83 (40.7%) of the examined books…

Montgomery, Sarah E.; Miller, Wendy; Foss, Page; Tallakson, Denise; Howard, Maria – Early Childhood Education Journal, 2017
Teaching about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948, is one way to support students' learning about issues of fairness. However, learning about this document is not enough. Students need to have experiences where they explore issues of justice and equity in order to learn about…

Rhoades, Mindi – Early Childhood Education Journal, 2016

Kemple, Kristen M.; Lee, Rang, II.; Harris, Michelle – Early Childhood Education Journal, 2016
Many have called for re-examination of the "colorblind" philosophy to which some early educators have, tacitly or explicitly, adhered (e.g. Boutte et al. 2011; Derman-Sparks and Edwards 2010; Husband 2012). It has been argued that, while colorblind approaches may appear to be politically neutral, they actually exacerbate racial…
