A PlayFair Team is a leadership opportunity for schools and students. In our experience, it is rare for a school to set about development of a long-term program aimed at strengthening the surrounding community on issues of social justice. Yet, this is exactly what schools talk to their students about through the curriculum. However, most often there is talk without action. What is missing is giving students opportunities to be involved in social justice, to take social justice to the community. What better way to accomplish this curricular aim than to become activists in the community around the school?
PlayFair Teams are a positive response by schools to the unfortunate fact that people with disabilities are not yet fully accepted members of our society.
