This has been an ongoing discussion in the Stats community. Rightly so. Statistics is a good place to organically incorporate themes of fairness, social justice, academic access, and public policy. I set out to create a document that other teachers and I could use as a resource, that could be printed as well as used electronically. Luckily, I have a number of colleagues both in MƒA and around the country who are passionate about social justice. They had a lot of great suggestions (and I have included those notes in the document). This will probably get updated as people make more recommendations.

Have any other Stats teachers incorporated social justice in their statistics classrooms? Let me know.
