Social justice — what does that mean to you as a person? As an educator? If you’re interested in starting this conversation, here’s a place to start. At Park Day School in Oakland, California, we use a social justice lens as we design curriculum, organize parent education, and develop school policies to help us better understand and address large, complex social issues such as poverty, food insecurity, racism, and environmental justice. By including our whole community, we create a learning environment that engages teachers, students, families, and staff in a deeper way.
