Democracy and Education has been the leading voice of the nineties for engaged teaching. Teaching for Social Justice collects the best of the journal.
Featuring a unique mix of hands-on, historical, and inspirational writings, the topics covered include education through social action, writing and community building, and adult literacy. An extensive "teacher file" and resource section survey teaching tools from curricula to activist-oriented websites. Next in The New Press's award-winning education publishing program, Teaching for Social Justice engages parents, citizens, students, and teachers in a conversation about the basis for education in a democracy.
