Moving Beyond Peace Education to Social Justice Education

“Moving Beyond Peace Education to Social Justice Education” is a visionary article, co-authored by Daisy Han and Trisha Moquino (groundbreaking founder of the Keres Children’s Learning Center in New Mexico and advocate for indigenous language revitalization)  provides a framework for radically changing peace education in elementary schools and beyond. “Cosmic and peace education requires that we develop in children and in ourselves an understanding of the history of racial and social injustice and the tools to dismantle inequity, in ways that are significantly different than the current practices.”  As the authors summarize, “When we clearly identify just peace, consciously build the necessary skills for justice, and take responsible individual and collective action, the future holds promise for liberation.”
