Revolutionary Solutions for an American School System that is Systemically Failing Black and Brown Children
In Justice Seekers (July 6, 2023, Wiley), celebrated social justice activist and veteran educator Lacey Robinson delivers an engaging combination of storytelling and research that explains why justice is happening―or not happening―inside the classroom and within the details of teaching and learning. You’ll read insights about how all students deserve a learning environment that is grade-level, engaging, affirming, and meaningful. All students flourish when their education not only acknowledges their identities but the identities of others, affirming who they are as academics and as human beings. You’ll see how adopting this mindset begins our journey toward justice as educators. In the book, you’ll discover the many ways that justice is found in the details of race, pedagogy, and standards-driven education, as well as:
- Strategies for challenging educators to see the ways in which they can contribute to eradicating racial inequity from the classroom and from society
- Ways to recognize and reduce the impact of low cognitive demand material presented to Black and brown children in schools across America
- Methods for improving the quality of your own teaching here and now
An intuitive and exciting roadmap for K-12 teachers, teachers-in-training, school administrators, and principals who aim to reverse the racial injustices today’s children face every day, Justice Seekers also belongs in the hands of educators, parents, and everyone who cares about educational equity.
