Description

This book will feature chapters highlighting international research from the past decade about the role education is playing in the disruption and dismantling of perpetuated systems of oppression. In the U.S., racism is the most widespread root of oppression. Black people in America, specifically, have suffered from centuries of discrimination and still struggle to receive the same privileges of their white peers. In other countries, however, there are other groups that face similar struggles. Discrimination and oppression on the basis of religion, ethnicity, socio-economic status, political-affilitation, and caste are just a few of the categories that would be explored in this text. The origins of these systems of discrimination will be contextualized and serve as the foundation on which authors build readers’ understandings of existing societal biases and oppression within historical framing. Since education is widely seen as the root for any widespread societal change, it is essential that educators and systems of education enact the changes that need to occur to achieve equity for the groups being oppressed. This book explores the role educators and systems of education play in the disruption and dismantling of perpetuated systems of oppression and systematic discrimination toward the group known as the most oppressed in that given country.

This publication will enable educators from around the globe to share their ideas and experiences working to dismantle deeply entrenched systems of bias and oppression. This diverse collection of work will serve educators globally who are seeking to effect these changes. The research shared will present the context, ideas and mechanics behind impactful efforts to dismantle systems of oppression. The reasons for why we need to disrupt systematic bias and oppression are well understood. We know what was done in the past because it is documented and can be examined retrospectively, contextualized in our histories. Now, we face the challenge of how to effect change for today and the future. We must turn to each other to learn and grow.

The U.S. has entered an era of increased awareness of race disparities and the need for social justice. The public consciousness about systematic racism in America has been raised through the Black Lives Matter Movement (BLM). While BLM protests were documented in countries across the globe, suggesting an increased awareness and rejection of racism, other nations have their own systems that serve to oppress particular groups. There are, undoubtedly, education activists working to disrupt these systems. In America, the time has come to act. We could strike out on our own into this wilderness of social equity. But our efforts would be better served, as would those of our partners in social justice around the globe, by learning about the journeys and successes of others. This book will bring together just such a body of knowledge, one that will serve to inform our efforts toward equity and perhaps ignite the fire of innovation for ways to effect social justice across the globe.
