This seminar will explore the issues and implications of seeing education, and leadership in education, as key protagonists in the search for social justice and equity as essential elements of democratic society.

The central question is “To what extent is it the role of educators to become socially active in addressing issues of social disadvantage and working to ameliorate the negative influence of a divided and divisive society?”howardphoto1

The seminar will start with the exchange of ideas relating to the nature of social justice, equity in society and the moral and professional duty of leaders. The facilitators will then offer perspectives on social justice in practice at local, national and international levels.

One of the emerging themes to be explored is the model of leadership that emerges from seeing schools as agents of social change and a means of securing equity and extending democracy.
