Through an anlysis of the educational systems of Europe, North America and Australia, the author concludes that social justice is fundamental to a good education.
Connell's thinking is firmly rooted in the experience of the classroom: if the school system deals unjustly with some of its pupils, the quality of education for all is degraded. He calls for "curricular justice" rooted in a democratic framework, capable of opening the perspectives of the least advantaged, and thereby moving toward the creation of a more equalitarian society.
Schools and Social Justice is a passionate call for the equal provision of education.
