Praise for Critical Pedagogy in Uncertain Times

“The contributors in this volume simultaneously provide conceptually sophisticated and pragmatic tools to pursue the construction of pedagogies of freedom where commitment to justice and fairness is encouraged, where respecting different perspectives on sciences and arts is stimulated, where disagreement is not punished, where caring for the other and a desire to know is celebrated, and where a passion for democracy and creating fair and inclusive futures is welcomed.” Foreword by Gustavo Fischman, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership & Policy Studies, Arizona State University

“At a time when the ruinous results of dominant neo-liberal policies are becoming increasingly clear, Critical Pedagogy in Uncertain Times offers the activist educator a cogent analysis of recent educational trends as well as useful suggestions for finding a way forward.”–Patricia H. Hinchey, Associate Professor of Education, Penn State University

“When education is increasingly reduced to test scores, this book reminds us what education can be for and how pedagogy can be practiced. The authors’ critique of the present system and description of what might be will strengthen the reader in working for a democratic society and schools.”–David Hursh, Associate Professor, University of Rochester

Dr. Sheila Macrine is an Associate Professor in the Curriculum and Teaching Department at Montclair State University in New Jersey.
