Change for Social Justice")
Teacher education is an essential element in education for social justice.
Different labels have been associated to the approach of Social Justice Teacher Education, such as social reconstructionist teacher education, social reconstructionist multicultural teacher education or critical teacher education. However, the approach of Social Justice provides a more solid and comprehensive framework for analysis. Besides, according to Kenneth Zeichner, it is the approach preferred today by teachers. Teacher Education for Social Justice prepares them to reduce inequalities among their students and to educate them to be agents of social change. With this perspective in mind, we dedicate the present issue to Teacher Education for Social Justice.
