Table of Contents

"This book is about theory, so it does not tell the reader what to do, but its careful analysis of the principles of social justice and educational practices leaves no doubt about what needs to be done.  The book is an exemplar of how the philosophy of education - sorely lacking in today's teacher preparation - can contribute to better practice."  --R.R. Sherman, Choice
