About the Course

“Education is freedom work” – Dr. Monique Morris.

For years, educational research has exposed the inequitable phenomenon’s burdening Black, Indigenous, and students of color in schools. Crises such as the school-to-prison pipeline, disproportionality, and lack of culture-responsive practices in schools call for reform. These noted problems are systemic, occur across state lines, and enforced by government policies. Frequently, when these topics are discussed, educators are held responsible for creating these disparities. Yet countless educators serve students and communities from a social justice orientation and have been instrumental in diminishing many of the racial and ethnic injustices facing students. While these educators are fighting for the human rights of their students and themselves, it is possible to get burnout and fatigued due to the size of the problem. Considering the impact of oppression on a person’s health, addressing the well-being of teachers is a social justice issue that could address educational inequities. Socially conscious work in education requires mindful activism.
