Social Equity

This article considers the attitudes of students towards social justice and equity and investigates how planning instruction may influence their understanding of these issues. It finds that students do understand and care about social justice and equity, but not as a result of their planning instruction. Planning instruction should work to better develop students’ practical skills for addressing these issues in their careers.
