2006 AESA Critics’ Choice Awards (American Educational Studies Association)

A thoroughly revised and updated edition of the classic text. Focuses on the roles of hope, participation, and change in reforming American schools.

Resting on the belief that educators must be at the center of informing education policy, the contributors to this revised edition of the classic text raise tough questions that will both haunt and invigorate pre- and in-service educators, as well as veteran teachers. They explore the policies and practices of structuring exclusions; they listen hard to youth living at the margins of race, class, ethnicity, and gender; and they wrestle with fundamental inequalities of space in order to educate for change. Written from the perspective of researchers, policy analysts, teachers, and youth workers, the book reveals a shared belief in education that "could be," and a shared concern about schools that currently reproduce class, race and gender relations, and privilege.

Contributors include Lisa Abrams, Janice L. Bloom, Lyn Mikel Brown, Ed Buendia, Dennis Carlson, Stephen David, Greg Dimitriadis, Thea Renda Abu El-Haj, Heriberto Godina, Ileana M. Gruia, Walter Haney, Heejung S. Kim, Chungmei Lee, Stacey J. Lee, R. L'Heureux Lewis, Richard R. Lussier, George Madaus, Hazel Rose Markus, Cameron McCarthy, Shuaib Meecham, Jing Miao, Jennifer Mueller, Carla O'Connor, Gary Orfield, Alicia Rodriguez, Susan L. Schramm-Pate, George W. Smith, K. E. Supryia, Mariá Elena Torre, Angela Valenzuela, Amy Stuart Wells, Anne Wheelock, Carrie Wilson-Brown, and Susan Yonezawa.

Lois Weis is Professor of Sociology of Education at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York. Michelle Fine is Distinguished Professor of Psychology at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. Together they have written and edited many books, including Working Method: Research and Social Justice and (with Linda Powell Pruitt and April Burns) Off White: Readings on Power, Privilege, and Resistance.
