Pedaling Poverty Through Pennies, Dimes, and Disaster

By Nicholas D. Hartlep

Abstract

This paper synthesizes and categorizes important social justice scholarship into a useable taxonomy that social justice workers can use in their personal and professional spheres of influence. The present paper discusses the idea that although social justice activities and/or projects may originate with noteworthy missions and motivations, unless their creators are vigilant, service projects have the potential to deteriorate into myth-making initiatives that reinforce the problems that they originally intended to ameliorate

Topics: deficit ideology, social justice, critical pedagogy, Education
