Education at its best is about opening doors, opening minds, and inviting students to become powerful choice-makers as they forge their own pathways into a wider world. While many teachers long for teaching to be something transcendent and powerful, they all too often find themselves teaching obedience and conformity. This dynamic book—by two renowned educators—is filled with classroom stories of everyday teachers grappling with many of today’s hotly debated issues. These stories of courage and resistance will help today’s teachers confront the cynicism and demoralization that has gripped the profession in this age of standardization and testing. It will help teachers to teach initiative, to teach imagination, to teach the taboo.” This is a hands-on manual for anyone looking to evolve as an educator.

William Ayers is Professor at the College of Education, University of Illinois, Chicago. His recent publications include Race Course Against White Supremacy (with Bernadine Dohrn) and the Handbook of Social Justice in Education (with Therese Quinn and David Stovall).
