The Wisdom of Youth: How Modern Ontario Roman Catholic Students Challenge and Resist the Persistent Colonial Agenda
Brennan, Terri-Lynn Kay
Canadian Journal of Education, v35 n1 p22-35 2012
Youth today in Roman Catholic schools are not experiencing the complete freedom of an identity that is unique and valued. They describe the Ontario Roman Catholic school system as if it is still an agent of colonial forces, maintaining imperial power through denominational religious elitism. Using a critical ethnographic methodology within a single revelatory case study, through the lens of an anti-colonial discursive framework, this study presents the voices of diverse youth in Ontario Roman Catholic schools who demand a change in the system to modernize in both form and method of knowledge delivery and content toward acknowledging the diversity of racialized and religious bodies in the corridors.
