The constantly increasing social injustice combined with sectarian frictions has placed Indonesian society in a fragile situation and, it, therefore, needs a closer attention, and more so in the field of education. This paper argues that reforms in education should begin from the very vital component of education, i.e. teacher since teacher contributes significantly to the development of students in almost all aspects. Also, the traditional approach of instruction does not seem able to provide solutions for most of the social problems, even though Islamic teachings strongly endorse equality, justice, and respect for differences. This conceptual paper, therefore, develops a model for reforms in teacher education starting from philosophical foundation of teaching to critical pedagogy practices. In this paper, this critical pedagogy approach is argued to enable teachers to become change agents for promoting education for social justice.
