Critical Essays on Resistance in Education
David M. Moss, Terry A. Osborn
Peter Lang, 2010 - Education - 258 pages
The notion of resistance resides as a deep-seated premise underpinning the democratic foundation of the United States. Given the distinctive standing of public education in the U.S., this book explores the multiple roles---and numerous contexts---that resistance plays in contemporary educational settings. Resistance in education creates, or reflects, the multiple counter-discourses that arise to challenge the one or more dominant discourses in any given educational setting. There is potency in the plurality of the varied and sometimes controversial arguments provided by each essay in this volume, which should be read by everyone interested in the concept within the framework of education today.
"It is possible to say that resistance in education has always been resisted; the point, of course, is who is doing the resisting. Why they are resisting, what they are resisting, and whose interests are being served by these acts of resistance. David M. Moss and Terry A. Osborn's provocative collection of essays on educational resistance gives new scope and meaning to the term `resistance' in the context of today's challenges to and on behalf of social justice education. It is an important contribution to the field of critical education."---Peter McLaren, Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, University of California, Los Angeles
