School Sucks! Arguments for Alternative Education: Arguments for Alternative Education, Dannielle Joy Davis, 9781433117046

Description

School Sucks! is designed to complement the dominant discourse of school reform by presenting a compendium of critical pedagogical writings that analyze the current issues in urban education and demonstrate alternative praxis for failing schools. The two editors of this volume also serve as the series editors for Peter Lang Publishing’s Educational Psychology and Black Studies and Critical Thinking series, giving them remarkable resources from which to draw this selection of writings that represent the very best concepts of pedagogy and praxis. School Sucks! furthers the reader’s knowledge of the pretext of urban educational problems and promotes a positive praxis of urban educational reform. Inspired by mentors Mary McLeod Bethune and Paulo Freire, School Sucks! employs a critical pedagogy and praxis in calling for wholesale changes within our urban schools. Rochelle Brock is Associate Professor of Urban Education and Executive Director of the Urban Teacher Education Program at Indiana University Northwest in Gary, Indiana. She is also an editor for The International Journal of Critical Pedagogy and series editor of Black Studies and Critical Thinking (Peter Lang Publishing). She has written books and articles on White privilege, teacher identity, critical pedagogy, African American popular culture, and Black feminist theory. Greg S. Goodman is Associate Professor of Education at Clarion University of Pennsylvania. His research interests include school psychology, educational psychology, distance learning, and how people learn.
