This book explores important current social justice issues that
confront young children in America. A broad range of topics related
to the fair treatment of young children and their families are
approached with a fresh and hopeful energy. The central argument of
this volume is that a fair and just society must protect the basic
needs of all children so they are able to reach their full
potential to learn, grow, and ultimately become productive
democratic citizens. The book includes contributions from an
impressive group of authors who have been consistent voices for the
fair and equitable treatment of children in school and society.
Each chapter examines a critical issue in child social justice with
a focus on the current problem, historical importance of the issue,
potential solutions, and a vision for the future. The book has been
developed to reach a wide audience of professionals whose work
involves children and who have grown concerned about social forces
that cause child suffering and threaten the well-being or even the
survival of children in the United States. Readers will come away
with up to date information and a renewed commitment to being
life-long advocates for children.
