NEA is committed to deepening educators’ understanding of social justice principles, and how these principles are relevant and useful to their work. We provide opportunities for members to explore the impact of social justice issues on students and educators, and work to empower educators to apply the principles of social justice when confronted with social oppression.
The Social Justice Training Program helps members draw the connection between achieving social justice in schools and realizing academic success for all students, and lays the foundation for NEA’s social justice work by teaching educators to create more just and effective learning environments.
Our program training will deepen educators' understanding of social justice principles and why these principles are relevant to their work, explore the impact of social justice issues on students and educators, and empower educators to apply the principles of social justice when confronted with social oppression in the workplace or Association.
This training made me realize that social justice matters to more people than I thought and we need to create that change through social justice for our students! –Participant, Indiana
