Teaching for Social Justice These essays follow a veteran teacher educator and school reform activist as he tries to understand an enterprise he calls ""mysterious and immeasurable."" By focusing on the authentic experiences of his teaching and learning, Bill Ayers reconsiders, argues, reflects, and searches for ways to break through the routine and the ordinary to see teaching as the important and extraordinary work it is. Covering a range of issues - standards, equity, testing, professionalism - this book shows us teaching as an achingly personal calling, and ultimately a social and political act.
