Abstract and Keywords

Social justice is a contested term in education. It is an old concept under renewed attack in many sectors of society, and schools have not been spared. Music education has been subject to the same repercussions of a broader shift in education reform that wants to see teaching and learning as a technocratic means to increasingly myopic education reform goals. At the same time, growing opposition to these trends can draw particular inspiration from the arts. Music education, therefore, is, perhaps, as threatening as some neoliberal reformers perceive it to be. Indeed, music education holds the possibility for a powerful partnership with all those educators who view education as a profoundly human and liberatory endeavor.

Keywords: education reform, neoliberal, liberatory, teaching and learning, democracy
