Abstract:

"Rick and William Ayers renew their challenge to teachers to teach initiative, to teach imagination, to "teach the taboo" in the new edition of this bestseller. Drawing from a lifetime of deep commitment to students, teaching, and social justice, the authors update their powerful critique of schooling and present classroom stories of everyday teachers grappling with many of today's hotly debated issues. They invite educators to live a teaching life of questioning--to imagine classrooms where every established and received bit of wisdom, common sense, orthodoxy, and dogma is open for examination, interrogation, and rethinking."
