This volume provides vivid pictures of classrooms whose teachers have made education for social justice central to their curriculum. While the goal may be idealistic, these class actions are profoundly practical. Readers will see familiar structures used in innovative ways. Written as first-person narratives with the voices of teachers and students, this book invites readers into urban and rural, elementary, middle school, and teacher education classrooms to experience a wide variety of ways to teach "justice for all."

Teaching social justice is a must. Like learning anything, a strong foundation must be in place first. The foundation on social justice must begin at home with preschool and elementary teachers building up the walls of knowledge on social justice. We do not live in isolated boxes, but in a diverse and wide world. Our children must be prepared.
