Justice is and has always been an important, yet elusive target in education policy. Throughout history, the actions of the education system have both created devastating barriers to social justice and delivered crucial reforms for the path forward. Across all sectors, there is a continuing need for courageous and critical thinking in education policymaking. Now more than ever, the education policy scholarly community has at its disposal the tools to conduct rigorous research that can help fight racial injustice. The goal of the Just Education Policy program is to inspire and engage the next generation of racial justice-focused education policy scholars.
This program will be held virtually June 1-2 and June 14-15, 2021, from 4 - 7 p.m. EST. Accepted participants are expected to attend all four days of the program, for a total of 12 hours, and will be compensated $200 at the end of the program for their participation.
