This issue of Voices in Urban Education was developed in collaboration with the Education for Liberation Network (EdLib, www.edliberation.org), a national coalition of teachers, community activists, youth, researchers, and parents who believe a good education should teach people – particularly low-income youth and youth of color — to understand and challenge the injustices their communities face.
