About this item

McDermott, a retired superintendent, teacher, and professional developer, shares personal anecdotes and insights about social justice in schools and how educators can become allies in the battle for social justice. She describes her experiences with social justice work and how educators can emerge from the fog of privilege by becoming aware, expose flaws in the dominant narrative by finding one's place in the social justice work, and embrace “allyhood” by uncovering what drives injustice. She discusses what white privilege is, developing social justice literacy, the role of privilege, power, and politics in schooling, dealing with avoidance, guilt, feelings of inadequacy, and misunderstanding, acknowledging the social and psychological cost of continued injustice, and using social justice theories to understand unjust situations; embracing dissonance, understanding tactics of deception and flawed theories, confronting the dominant narrative, breaking the silence, and changing the conversation; and the importance of allies, the characteristics of those successful in social justice work, and examples of activism in action.
