Neutrality as Obstructionist in Academic Activism: Calling Bullshit
Rose, Barbara J.
Educational Forum, v82 n3 p309-320 2018
In this essay, the author uses experiences as a teacher educator and learning from a historically significant activism movement to (a) compare values in activism-centered and education-centered organizations, (b) posit ways that the concept of neutrality weakens academic activism, and (c) call for teacher education curricula and practices that empower preservice teachers to "call bullshit" on educational inequities.
