Education, Oppression and the (Im)Possibility of Resistance
Van de Kleut, Geraldine; White, Connie
Online Submission, Paper prepared for the Annual National Reading Conference (Albuquerque, NM, Dec 4, 2009)
In this article Geraldine Van de Kleut and Connie White examine what their two geographically and politically different teaching locals have in common with each other and with the current global education movement. They further discuss their mutual struggles to find spaces to practice social justice under the oppressive mandates of a neoliberal education regime. In light of these understandings and the research findings around teacher resistance, the authors argue for the need for educators at all levels to engage in resistance and research of resistance to the repressive demands of current neoliberal settings in schools.
