Description: In Teaching Toward Freedom, William Ayers proposes a new way of looking at the craft of education: how it can be used in authoritarian ways at the service of the state, the church, or a restrictive existing social order-or, as he envisions it, as a way for students to achieve "their fullest democratic humanity." Using examples from his own classroom experiences as well as from popular culture, film, and novels, Ayers redraws the lines concerning how we teach, why we teach, and what we find when we help students become independent, restless, and engaged learners. This lucid and inspiring book will help teachers at every level to realize that ideal. "Five thoughtful essays that examine how teachers need to value their students, challenge themselves, and teach for freedom." -Bob Peterson, Rethinking Schools Praise for A Kind and Just Parent: "It is Bill Ayers"s immersion in the lives of [the students] that gives this book its strength and passion and intensity. Vivid narratives are set in context by an author who has studied history and understands the politics of juvenile injustice. I hope this book will reach the ears of Congress." -Jonathan Kozol, author of Amazing Grace and Savage Inequalities "William Ayers is as sensitive and gifted a chronicler as he is a teacher." -Studs Terkel, author of Hope Dies Last and Working
