This chapter offers a conceptualization of socially progressive teacher education. It draws on three distinct, but linked ideas, namely: social progressivism as a political ideology; pedagogical progressivism as an educational movement; and social and environmental justice as ethical imperatives. In so doing, it offers a means of framing teacher education that is arguably more nuanced and complete than other alternatives, providing a means of both conceptualizing programs and enacting explicit political commitments.
