Marginalization of groups transpires when a dominant group precludes a group of individuals from participating in activities or gaining access to services. As the global economy and technologies have significantly changed, it has been assumed that equal access to educational opportunities would be more readily available for traditionally ostracized groups.

Critical Essays on the New Moral Imperative for Supporting Marginalized Students in PK-20 Education provides relevant theoretical frameworks and the latest empirical research findings in the area of social justice and critical pedagogy as it relates to teaching culturally, economically, ethnically, socially, or other marginalized PK-20 student populations. This book highlights a variety of topics such as educational technology, ethical theory, and digital agency. It is ideal for teaching professionals, pre-service and in-service teachers, educational researchers, administrators, sociologists, teacher preparation faculty, and students.
