So how can you make a difference? McDermott, a longtime educator, gives you the tools to become a powerful ally.

You'll learn how to: Better understand the depth and breadth of injustice so you can pierce the fog of privilege and embrace ally-hoodFill the gap between your desire to eliminate injustice and the attitudes and skills required to be effectiveLeverage your natural strengths, including your disposition, educational training, and professional positionChallenge the structural barriers, practices and beliefs that diminish opportunities for many students Working for social justice is a journey, and it's one that you-and your students- can take together.
