Just Education is an interpretive look at the use of a single pivotal phrase in the American educational equity lexicon, "the right to education." Stengel begins by sketching seven typical scenarios in which the assertion of the right to education seems to make sense. While these scenarios are hypothetical constructions, they are not merely imagined or possible uses. Each is loosely based on some real contemporary situation. These scenarios constitute the starting point and the data for Stengel's contextual analysis of language and intention. She proceeds to draw out a multi-dimensional portrait of what we effect when we claim "a right to education." She concludes with a discussion of whether the phrase helps or hinders the advancement of justice in education.
