The Gandhi-King Community

For Global Peace with Social Justice in a Sustainable Environment

From all angles, we face an ethical crisis. What ethics do you think are important to impart to children and youth at this time?
To college age children?
What are the ways that you would seek to impart these ethics?

I don't think social justice is or can be taught through theories exactly as you indicate above. Much of social justice teaching is practical - as you say, students learn how to stick to principles and values they believe in. You can do this through introducing service learning into the curriculum. The curriculum is not just theoretical lectures to be thrown at students, it should consist of child-centered strategies to engage students in social justice activities. Delving into 'theory' really only extends to illustrating to students (again through child-centered activities) how people historically took action to stand up for their rights, for example, in the Indian independence movement and the African-American freedom struggle.
