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. Contributors from across Canada discuss the initiatives behind their approaches, how they developed curricula and the future of their educational work:

Anti-Homophobia Initiatives, Tim McCaskell and Vanessa Russell

Multicultural and Anti-Racist Education, Ouida M. Wright

Black Education, Maxine Bramble

Education for Citizenship, Mark Evans and Ian Hundey

Development Education, Louella Cronkhite

Educating for Gender Equity, Lyndsay
