The world society ought to be conceived on the principle of the moral equality of races and nations. 5 W. E. B. DuBois (1935) Response to Counts: W. E. B. DuBois (1935) Response to Counts “Whenever a teachers’ convention meets and tries to find out how it can cure the ills of society, there is simply one answer; the school has but one way to cure the ills of society and that is by making men intelligent. To make men intelligent, the school has again but one way, and that is, first and last, to teach them to read, write and count. And if the school fails to do that, and tries beyond that to do something for which a school is not adapted, it not only fails in its own function, but it fails in all other attempted functions. Because no school can organize industry, or settle on the matter of wage and income, can found homes or furnish parents, can establish justice or make a civilized world” (p. 257). W. E.B. DuBois, cited in Kenneth James King, Pan-Africanism and Education: A study of Race, Philanthropy, and Education in the Southern States of America and East Africa (Oxford, Eng.: Clarendon Press, 1971). 6 Toward Social Justice: Toward Social Justice Ideal Moving target Wrongs, Ills (injustices) _______________ _______________ _______________ _______________ _______________ 7 John Rawls 1921-2002: A Classical Liberal Perspective of Justice A Theory of Justice (1971): John Rawls 1921-2002: A Classical Liberal Perspective of Justice A Theory of Justice (1971) Major principles emphasize difference, distribution of “social and economic inequalities”, and an equality of opportunity that is to be the greatest benefit to the least advantaged members of society (p. 5-6). 8 Concepts Associated with Justice : Concepts Associated with Justice Equality Condition Opportunity (i.e., access) Outcomes Equity 9 Fair, just, impartial Differentiated distribution/treatment Action toward change Redress (correct past wrongs) Equal, even, level Types of Justice : Types of Justice Distributive (distribution of goods, services) Recognitive (recognition: respect, dignity, voice) Restorative (consequences or amends for wrongdoing) Procedural (rules, processes) 10 Distributive Justice: Criteria: Merit: earned Desert: deserved Need: ? required x for y. 11 Distributive Justice: Criteria Social Reconstructionism: Social Reconstructionism Resurgence in1960s as Social Justice Critical Pedagogy Multicultural Education that is Social Reconstructionist (culturally relevant, responsive curriculum/pedagogy, ethnic studies) Democratic Education Social Justice Anti-oppressive education 12 Social-reconstructionism/Social Justice: Social- reconstructionism /Social Justice Society is imperfect Ills remedied through active participation of people Change to meets the needs of more,(if not all).
