Social justice, fairness for all, is an aspiration in any democratic society. After all the term justice for all is even in the United States Pledge of Allegiance. If you think about the schools in Nazi Germany, those teachers also wanted their students to do well in science to study music to achieve and all their classes. But what makes a school in a democracy different is that we have to aspire to allow students to play a role in imagining the kind of future they want to have, the kind of world they want to live in, and give them the tools to construct that world. The differences between a democratic and authoritarian school is whether the students and their families have a voice in the curricula him and the culture of the school.
