Power, Progress, & Pedagogy

In partnership with Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER), EJC will present the first international academic conference on Educational Justice. Higher education educators, professors and academicians worldwide will present their research on the ever changing dynamics, politics and challenges of education from around the world.

The goal of these sessions is to provide educators an opportunity to share and discuss how educational standards may not be fair, equitable or just, seemingly and particularly for the disadvantaged, poor, underserved and in some environments religious or governmental limitations.

  • Powerful, thought provoking discussions, winning strategies, mapping out your game plan
