Doing Counterwork in the Age of a Counterfeit President: Resisting a Trump-DeVos Education Agenda
Green, Terrance L.; Castro, Andrene
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v30 n10 p912-919 2017
In this article, we explore and conceptualize "counterwork" in education as a critical element for resistance and progressive social change in the era of Donald Trump's presidency. We first discuss education in the context of a Trump-DeVos administration, and how this milieu necessitates activist research and counterwork. Grounded in a sense of critical hope and part of a larger anti-hegemonic project, we describe our conceptualization of counterwork in education as unfinishedness and the critical imagination, human agency, and transformational resistance for liberation. This approach to education is committed to sustaining an anti-racist, anti-oppressive, and a critical social justice agenda in education across the P-20 spectrum
