Social education is quite a journey. Given the ongoing debate and struggle with defining social education, the following is at present a working definition - While we resist defining social education, we believe that social education emphasizes three areas of study: critical pedagogy, cultural/media studies, and social studies education.

We also stress that education, interpreted broadly, has the potential to advance social justice. Thus emerged social education... a lifelong journey for all of us - to question, to challenge, to do, and to create. Connecting present and past, merging current issues with traditional curriculum, integrating alternative texts and perspectives, empowering and emancipating kids and educators, and transforming schools and society - the transgressions of social education scream out.

Dewey, Freire, Kincheloe, Zinn, Greene, Giroux, Apple, hooks, McLaren, Kozol, Loewen, Said, Chomsky, even Bob Dylan and many others have provided the impetus. May we make them proud The essays within this text demonstrate various journeys in social education. They are meant as stories, not maps or scripts. They are intended to serve as a primer of sorts, for those interested in a similar journey. Hopefully, this can be a meaningful experience for many - students, educators, parents, and society as a whole, of course. Well... the journey and struggle continues...
