Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Most accessible but not limited to graduate students and faculty, this is a wide-ranging anthology of articles/readings originally published in the education serial Democracy and Education. It is an enlightening book whose topics include community building, adult literacy, empowerment, diversity education, responsibility, social action education, and writing. "Teaching for social justice" is teaching what one believes ought to be in terms of material arrangements for people in all spheres of society, i.e., reflective experiential responses leading to action. Writers represented are Michael Apple, Jonathan Kozol, Herbert Kohl, Henry Giroux, and 42 others. An extensive bibliography and a list of organizations, periodicals, web sites, and Popular Education institutes round out the text. Editors Ayers (Univ. of Illinois), Jean Anne Hunt (editor, Democracy and Education), and Therese Quinn (doctoral candidate, Univ. of Illinois) have put together a useful resource for academic collections.?Scott R.

This is an inspiring collection of stories from 46 teachers who have taken James B. Macdonald’s theories (See Theory as a Prayerful Act) to heart and tell us how they work out in practice. The authors believe that everyone affected by a decision ought to have a part in making the decision. And yes, that means students. In Ayers’ Foreword he says, “The fundamental message of the teacher for social justice is: You can change the world.” Some of the stories recounted here are of programs with parents, empowering them personally in changing the situation in the community and the schools. Some used the insight of the Caribbean revolutionary C.L.R. James, who thought the artistic expressions of ordinary people contain truths essential for social change. Examples of curriculum themes for a school in New York City: Sixth Grade: Autobiographical Projects – how they came here through personal and family history; Seventh Grade: Community Mapping – linking their skills to the lives of their communities; Eighth Grade: Historical Analysis of the Community; Ninth Grade: Community Economic Development in the Global Context; Tenth Grade: Urban Planning and Infrastructure Management – education, health, criminal justice, public administration, social services, political economy of New York City; Eleventh Grade: Social Movements, Culture, and Urban Arts; Seniors: weekly seminars with guest speakers from corporate, small business, non-profit and government, and production of a senior project on a New York City issue.

Being a conservative, I often buy books that will help me to understand where the "other side" is coming from. While the points of view reflected are presented quite well, They show just how far we are being led away from Common Sense and from the foundations of our country. As has often been said it is hard know what the opposition is doing if you don't know where they are at.
