How does the work of education allow us to practice justice? Most of us know the nuts and bolts of the educational system — tests, desks, pencils, and locker rooms. For the teachers who have spoken into this conversation, however, school is primarily a community filled with people who challenge us. Each of these writers has been changed by interacting with other teachers and students. In these teachers’ worlds, education itself becomes a conversation — and that conversation transforms both students and teachers.
