Abstract: A challenge inherent in infrastructuring for justice lies in how existing structures and foundations that anchor education and educational reform enterprises are rooted in White Supremacy and heteropatriarchy, given their historical dominance in the disciplines, schooling and society. Drawing from justice-oriented studies of reform, and rightful presence centered participatory design-based research in long-term research+practice partnerships (RPP), we argue that infrastructuring for justice-oriented reform is contingent on scaling allied, sociopolitical activity systems in schools. Infrastructuring for justice requires on-going resistances, disruptions and transformations of existing structures and foundations that anchor educational research and reform. The objects of reform need to shift to the scalability of new relationalities from the scalability of products, tools, and ideas. Such new relationalities should be viewed as the new foundations for infrastructuring reform, with attention paid to the political clarity necessary for the conditions that make such justice-oriented reform possible.
