Facing the Challenges: Student Antiracist Activists Counter Backlash and Stereotyping.
Lund, Darren E.
Young activists share their experiences with the current climate of hostility toward school diversity initiatives, and toward young people in general. This paper outlines a problematic lack of engagement of student activists in informing teacher education for social justice, particularly related to their undervalued role as active participants in ongoing coalitions. The paper offers excerpts from in-depth interviews with seven student participants in western Canadian schools which reveal new understandings about the potential of school-based activists to counter stereotypical portrayals of young people, to resist a conservative social and political climate, and to inform academic efforts around educational research and teacher education. (Contains 36 references and 2 notes.) (Author/BT)
