In this talk, Professor Nieto will discuss what it means to promote social justice and equity in education. Based on her theories and those of other scholars about multicultural and social justice education, and culturally responsive pedagogy, as well as her research with teachers over many years, she will suggest the kinds of mindsets and practices that have proven successful with students of diverse racial, linguistic, and cultural backgrounds.
