Preparing and Sustaining Social Justice Educators spotlights the challenging and necessary work of fostering social justice in schools. Integral to this work are the teachers and school leaders who enact the principles of social justice—racial equity, cultural inclusivity, and identity acceptance—daily in their classrooms. This volume makes the case that high-quality public education relies on the recruitment, professional development, and retention of educators ready to navigate complex systemic and structural inequities to best serve vulnerable student populations.


For the last 30 years, UCLA’s Center X has been a beacon in preparing educators to teach and lead in culturally responsive and sustaining ways, especially in working-class, urban communities of color. This important book provides a valuable history of this inspirational body of work from the perspectives and stories of both university and school partners. It should be required reading for every aspiring and current teacher and leader educator. — Ken Zeichner, Boeing Professor of Teacher Education Emeritus, University of Washington
