First paragraph: Social justice refers to the concept of a society affording individuals and groups fair treatment and an impartial share of the benefits of that society. It is crucial in relation to children and young people who have little control over their environment or circumstances, and have little say over much of what happens to them in schools in the name of testing and assessment.
