Teachers as social justice advocates

Report from conference organised by Education International, the global confederation of teachers’ unions. The report is by Chris Smith NUT national organising forum for young teachers.

“Teachers are in a unique position as social justice advocates, not just educational advocates, writes Chris Smith in The Morning Star.
Educators from across the globe spent three days last week in Brussels debating the UN’s recent Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The conference organised by Education International, the global confederation of teachers’ unions, was the first of its kind in gathering together young teachers (currently defined as below 35) to discuss how the 17 goals that make up the SDGs can be acted upon by educators and also how teachers, unions and wider civil society can use the SDGs to challenge and change their governments.”

Chris Smith teaches history and politics in Norwich and is a member of the NUT’s national organising forum for young teachers. You can follow him on Twitter @chriswriteshere.
