This chapter starts by returning to the idea of capabilities and social justice introduced in chapter two. It suggests that one practical action is for schools within a local area to work together, and this leads to a discussion of the importance of cooperation between schools, and between students within a school. It then discusses an approach to professional development that involves academics and teachers working together within action research projects. The chapter ends with a personal reflection on how to take practical steps to reduce the severe injustices that continue to exist within the educational system.
