Social Justice, Peace, and Environmental Education: Global and Indivisible
Th is book seeks to demonstrate that social justice, peace, and environmental preservation are integrally connected, that they are of equal importance, and that educators should play a major role in teaching students how to understand global problems and take corresponding social action. Inspired by the Alaska Standards for Culturally Responsive Schools (Assembly of Alaska Native Educators, 1998), we present standards and guidelines to assist educators who want to integrate social justice, peace, and environmental education (SJPEE) into classrooms and schools. Th is introductory chapter provides an overview of the topics covered in this book, and sets the stage for how urgently educational reform is needed.
