This chapter examines internal debates within Participatory Action Research Team for Youth (PARTY) about the curricular goals of social justice education, particularly those focused on the meaning of academic standards and preparation for college and careers. Core debates within PARTY concerned the meaning and role of academic skill building and “standards” in the social justice class, and the relative value of academic versus vocational preparation for empowering Jackson students in their transition to adult roles. The chapter contextualizes PARTY's intragroup debates by connecting them to the realities of the postindustrial labor market and the historic struggle to define the purpose of high school at the bottom of the educational hierarchy.

Keywords:   Participatory Action Research Team for Youth, social justice education, academic skill building, intragroup debates
