Justice in Schools: 2016 Election
Teaching controversial issues and topics can raise complex challenges even in the best of times. Educators and administrators are finding this year's presidential election particularly daunting. This program, from Harvard's Graduate School of Education, has developed a case study designed to help teachers, school and district leaders, parents, teacher educators, and middle and high school students have nuanced conversations about how to address the election in schools. The case raises important pedagogical, ethical, democratic, legal, and political considerations, and invites readers to reflect on them both on their own and in dialogue with others.
