“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Education is the key to eliminating gender inequality, to reducing poverty, to creating a sustainable planet, to preventing needless deaths and illness, and to fostering peace. And in a knowledge economy, education is the new currency by which nations maintain economic competitiveness and global prosperity." -Nelson Mandela

Yes! - Critical Consciousness
Systems - People - Power
• Critical Consciousness The willingness and ability to see how power and privilege are at work to systematically advantage some while simultaneously disadvantaging others (Radd & Kramer, 2013). The ability to critically analyze the social forces that constrain individuals and communities within systems of inequities based on race, gender, gender identity, sexuality, dis/ability, religion, national origin, economic status and other [identity markers], and to engage in individual or collective action to redress social inequities (Duncan-Andrade, 2007).
Non Dominant – PurposeTo critically analyze their social conditions and to take individual or collective action in order to change identified inequities.Dominant – Purpose[for members of privileged groups who have greater access to resources and power] is to learn to operate as allies to marginalized communities and collaborate with them to transform systems of oppression.
o A form of schooling that systematically strips historically marginalized students of their language, culture, and academic wellbeing through the of assimilation to the dominant culture (Valenzuela 1999).
