Social Justice In Education - A Q&A on 10/9

Where do you think the line is between a student's success (or lack thereof) being determined by their choices, or the result of systemic forces beyond their control?

In my experience they are and need to be responsible for their success or lack thereof

Where that line is specifically though would, in my opinion, depend on the student. IEPs and 504s into consideration also. They must be held accountable for themselves at some point...the real world hits hard...

We often let ourselves off the hook by suggesting that student failure is a result of their negative choices, in other words a failure of their character. But thousands of studies have demonstrated that iPhone student resistance or student disengagement as a result of years of the student being marginalized or told they can’t succeed or not getting the support they need. There is a long tradition in education of blaming the community or blaming the student, suggesting that they come with only deficits and negative. Our responsibility is to find the assets and strengths of students and to inspire them to greatness. It doesn’t always work, but I would caution against a simplified, one-dimensional view that fails to take into account the complicated life and school history of each student. I have often seen students who are defined as four or five years behind in reading level, who jumped up very quickly within a few months once they felt they belong and they were being seen

I would have to agree with you there, regarding all those researchers going back into classrooms to put their theories into action.

I must humbly offer that the Literature you are referring to is fiction. And in order to write successful fiction, One must have a conflict regarding circumstances with protagonist and antagonist.
