Celebrating Diverse Voices: Progressive Education and Equity
Frank Pignatelli, Susanna W. Pflaum
SAGE Publications, 1993 - Education - 252 pages
This challenging collection of essays is about achieving progressive school reform, justice and equity. Particular attention is paid to the effects of actions by educators (actions that follow the rules but have unjust results versus actions that achieve equity). The contributors pose many challenging questions for progressive educators, for example: how can progressive educational theory, policy and practice achieve equity? How can volatile issues of diversity be negotiated so that the marginalized are heard? At the heart of this book is a belief in the need for cultural understanding, ethical commitment, democracy and justice. Against the backdrop of the highly-charged social setting in the US, the authors discuss progressive legacies and promising modern experiments in promoting equity in education.
