Learning as a Political Act: Struggles for Learning and Learning from Struggles
Segarra, José A., Ed.; Dobles, Ricardo, Ed.
Harvard Education Press
In this remarkable collection of educational journeys toward learning and liberation, students, scholars, and activists bring to life the ideas and histories of groups that have been silenced in mainstream educational arenas. The rich variety of learners in learning as a political act--including Chicana women, Puerto Rican schoolchildren, Eritrean women, Hmong college women--challenges our assumptions about learning. Gender, ethnic identity, class, national allegiance, age, sexuality--all of these are dealt with from the vantage points of people engaged in struggles to learn and, through learning, to reach beyond where they are.
Descriptors: Politics of Education, College Students, Minority Group Students, Elementary School Students, Hispanic American Students, Puerto Ricans, Blacks, Hmong People, Females, Educational Attitudes, Sex, Ethnicity, Social Class, Patriotism, Age, Sexuality, Disadvantaged
