Summary

While teachers, scholars, and activists have long discussed the need for antioppressive school environments, few have provided teachers with resources to transform their classrooms. Kevin Kumashiro provides educational models for such environments, weaving interviews with queer activists with his interpretation of postmodern theories. As Troubling Education explores new approaches to education, it troubles those very explorations by examining multiple ways of reading activism and its pedagogical role. Kumashiro demonstrates that how we read is as important as what we read; in doing so, he offers ways of "doing" research that complement curricular reform. Book jacket.
