Social Justice And Education Policy (Module)

Module description

This module considers what is meant by the concept of social justice and explores some of the difficulties involved in trying to enact socially just practices in education policy. It will consider tensions between distributive, cultural and associational forms of justice by looking at some examples of contexts in which these tensions arise. Each session will focus on a different axis of social differentiation, for example, poverty, disability, sexuality and faith.
