This edited volume brings to the foreground the inequities of contemporary schooling in Canada. The editors and authors perform a critical examination of the Canadian schooling space, highlighting the agency and action of marginalized communities and their efforts to address injustice within contexts of schooling. Grounded in the unique perspective of each author, this book provides a venue for transformative practice to create inclusive and socially just contexts for diverse populations, specifically as experienced by peoples who inhabit the intersections of various modes of oppression
