The Complexly Constructed Citizen-Worker: Her/His Centrality to the Struggle for Radical Democratic Politics and Education.
This paper examines the role of identity within the radical democratic traditions, specifically the categories known as citizens and worker. The progressive coalition aimed at countering classism, racism, ethnic and gender injustices, homophobia and misogyny must seek an axis around which to organize the diversity of humankind. Retaining the citizen-worker designation as a possible unifying membership that is compatible with current identity politics is suggested. The paper carries the examination of social class into the realm of teacher education and sees the reality of classroom achievement as an indicator of its influence on society. (EH)
