UCLA Center X researchers Jean Ryoo and Jane Margolis along with artist Charis JB, have teamed up to produce “Power On!” a groundbreaking graphic novel that shines a bright and innovative light on the issues of representation and participation in computer science and technology.
Center X provides a unique setting where researchers and practitioners collaborate to design and conduct programs that prepare and support K-12 teachers and administrators committed to social justice, instructional excellence, the integration of research and practice, and caring in low-income urban schools.
We are a community of educators working to transform public schooling to create a more just, equitable, and humane society. Our work extends across two graduate credential programs and many professional development initiatives.
We are extremely excited to announce the publication of our book, Preparing and Sustaining Social Justice Educators, edited by our very own executive director, Annamarie Francois, along with UCLA Center for Community Schooling director Karen Hunter Quartz. Thank you to everyone who contributed!
“This recognition underscores the value of our work in advancing educational scholarship and practice that is grounded in an ethic of care and focused on creating educational opportunity for all citizens, locally and globally.”
