The “spirit slashing” of injustice: that’s what Veronica McDermott calls the psychic toll that marginalized students face every day. Students can be marginalized because of race, economic status, language, sexual orientation, ability, or other factors. So how can you make a difference? McDermott, a longtime educator, gives you the tools to become a powerful ally. You’ll learn how to:
- Better understand the depth and breadth of injustice so you can pierce the fog of privilege and embrace ally-hood
- Fill the gap between your desire to eliminate injustice and the attitudes and skills required to be effective
- Leverage your natural strengths, including your disposition, educational training, and professional position
- Challenge the structural barriers, practices and beliefs that diminish opportunities for many students
Working for social justice is a journey, and it’s one that you—and your students— can take together.
