Academic Journal
The article presents an interview with Alfredo Artiles and Beth Harry, who are special education educators. When asked about socially just education, Artiles responded by saying that one talks about socially just education as a way to create systems that are culturally responsive, it means to have educational systems that are mindful of a number of things including importance of history in education. On responding to a question related to humility in education Beth Harry said, that humility as a process of teaching attitudes in education is a tough process. Humility comes with discovering how ethnocentric one is, therefore it can't be placed on educational curriculum.
