The approach the authors have taken supports teachers and their students in rethinking the ways in which the problems of inequality have been normalized as everyday practices. The book will help teachers to rethink inequality in systemic terms and to find opportunities for taking action at any moment.u0026rdquo;u003cbr /u003eu0026#8212;u003cstrongu003eCarol Schicku003c/strongu003e, Associate Professor, Faculty of Education, University of Reginau003c/pu003eu003cpu003eu0026ldquo;The most accessible book on social justice I have ever read!
