Description

Brave New Teachers is a timely investigation of democratic teacher practice in culturally diverse school systems. Based on an original study of the Urban Diversity Teacher Education Program at York University, it investigates the extent to which graduates of a teacher education program grounded in the democratic principles of equity, diversity, and social justice can hold true to these principles in a climate of conservative school culture and state-mandated educational reform that focuses on standardization and accountability. The result is a critical Canadian perspective on both the challenges and the possibilities of working for social justice in the classroom.

Editorial Review

"Brave New Teachers offers a series of thought-provoking testimonials from young teachers committed to practicing diversity in education. These teachers’ testimonies illustrate what it means to foster transformative practices that lead to engaging the ever-changing Canadian student population. This is a serious and compelling contribution to the praxis of education in new urban environments."— “S. Nombuso Dlamini, Jean Augustine Chair in Education in the New Urban Environment, York University
