Education plays a vitally important role in building foundations for social progress. This remarkable collection describes educational models based on the principles of tolerance, equity and justice developed over the past three decades by teachers, parents, activists and students. In a time of crippling cutbacks and educational reforms designed to promote ‘business’ over ‘education,’ this book is critical reading.
