Much work lies ahead. We face resistance in many forms. We face xl Introduction constraints at many levels. We face oppression that plays out well beyond our classrooms and that, therefore, will not end simply because we change what and how we teach. Anti-oppressive education is not the panacea. But change is possible. Change is already happening in classrooms throughout the world, and I expect readers will see themselves already doing versions of many of the suggestions I present in this book.
And therein lies the reason for re-centering education on issues of social justice, that is, on a social movement against oppression. , in forms of education that explicitly work against multiple oppressions. In recent years, educators and researchers have suggested a range of theories of oppression and practices to challenge oppression. Their suggestions can be grouped generally into four overlapping approaches to anti-oppressive education. The first approach focuses on improving the experiences of students who have traditionally been treated in harmful Introduction xxxvii ways and not treated in helpful ways.
Many people do not agree that change is needed in the oftentimes invisible ways that schools and society favor or privilege certain groups or identities and disadvantage or marginalize others. And those people who do must challenge commonsensical views of what and who schools and teachers are “supposed” to be that draw on historical traditions and cultural myths that make change difficult. Common and commonsensical notions of “real” or “good” teaching do not involve challenging oppression and can actually help to perpetuate rather than change the oppressive status quo of schools and society.
