Este documento conceptual defiende la necesidad de que entendamos la relación entre el currículo y la justicia social, en gran medida a través de la lente de lo que el autor llama “punto de vista curricular”. Este marco ayuda a definir el tejido conectivo de cómo se manifiesta el contexto social, cultural, institucional, económico y político dentro de la lucha por el conocimiento, incluido qué conocimiento se enmarca como de sentido común y hegemónico a través de cosas como libros de texto, estándares estatales y exámenes de alto riesgo. por lo tanto, también implicó la conciencia de los estudiantes sobre el mundo. Basándose en la Teoría del Punto de Vista Feminista, este artículo argumenta en última instancia que, si podemos reconocer plenamente hasta qué punto las relaciones sociales se manifiestan en el conocimiento escolar, también creamos las condiciones para un examen crítico de ese conocimiento, así como las posibilidades para el desarrollo de un mayor conocimiento. conciencia crítica sobre el currículo y la sociedad, detallando así la relación entre el currículo y la justicia social
