Jeannine Hill Fletcher

Fordham University Press

In this chapter, Fletcher examines the problems and pitfalls of placing students in communities of need if they do not study the root causes of injustice. She cautions Jesuit educators concerning student participation in service that can replicate the gap between rich and poor, privileged and dispossessed, and reinforce stereotypes. She also presents the tools necessary to equip students to understand systems of structural injustice and see their positions of power. Therefore, Fletcher believes that educators in the Jesuit tradition must be willing to be companions, prophets and martyrs.
