In this empirical study we designed a questionnaire that seeks to analyse the representations that Spanish students and teachers have about Social Justice. The questionnaire includes a set of different dilemmas about social justice issues. The questions represent three fundamental dimensions in social justice: representation, redistribution, and recognition. The questionnaire has been applied to a sample of teachers and students of elementary education and secondary education. The results show differences in social justice conceptions regarding student´s level of education and gender. We also found differences depending on participant´s age and educational level in the three dimensions of social justice: representation, recognition and redistribution.
