The Education (with a Concentration in Elementary Curriculum and Instruction and an Emphasis in Social Justice) is designed to meet the needs of educators working in today’s highly culturally and linguistically diverse schools and communities. The program examines education and schooling with a focus on social justice, addressing a broad range of socio-cultural dimensions and historical and current contexts.
Candidates explore and articulate interdisciplinary strategies to create equity and inclusion in their educational settings, particularly with regard to ethnicity/race, class, gender, (dis)ability, sexual orientation, language, nationality and migration status of the university’s students, families, teachers and communities.
