Is Everyone Really Equal?: An Introduction to Key Concepts in Social Justice Education

This was an quick read, that provided a really easy to understand description of the key concepts of social justice. It provided a great overview of the key movements and ideas discussed in the media, but did so through real life examples that illustrated the concepts. Excellent primer on this important topic.

This is the new edition of the award-winning guide to social justice education.


Based on the authors’ extensive experience in a range of settings in the United States and Canada, the book addresses the most common stumbling blocks to understanding social justice. This comprehensive resource includes new features such as a chapter on intersectionality and classism; discussion of contemporary activism (Black Lives Matter, Occupy, and Idle No More); material on White Settler societies and colonialism; pedagogical supports related to “common social patterns” and “vocabulary to practice using”; and extensive updates throughout.

Accessible to students from high school through graduate school, Is Everyone Really Equal? is a detailed and engaging textbook and professional development resource presenting the key concepts in social justice education. The text includes many user-friendly features, examples, and vignettes to not just define but illustrate the concepts.
