Book review

This volume aims to offer an exercise in the cultural politics of teaching. It invites teachers and interested others to rethink what they know about social justice and to rework how they engage in the practices of teaching, particularly in relation to how these influence the lives of students. Informed by a recognitive view of social justice, "Just Schooling" analyzes the various discourses and ideologies mobilized in classrooms that implicitly and explicitly determine what is understood by the nature and centrality of language, the purposes and meaning of education, and the diversity of students, particularly with respect to their gender, race and social class but also their learning dis/abilities. Throughout, the authors argue for a democratization of classroom relations, beginning with students' and teachers' personal lives and connecting these with wider contexts, as a way of addressing the advantages and disadvantages traditionally reproduced by schooling.
