I Answer With My Life: Life Histories of Women Teachers Working for Social Change (Critical Social Thought)
The conservative agenda has come to dominate the official American educational debate over the last decade, but many teachers are continuing, largely unnoticed, the struggle against injustice. "I Answer with My Life" recounts the experiences of contemporary women teachers working for social change in three distinct situations: Catholic nuns in social justice ministry, Jewish women in inner-city schools and black women working for the promotion of racial minorities. Kathleen Casey combines theory and narrative to show that, despite the diversity of their political projects, her subjects all have much in common. All those who work for social change have a great deal to learn from the care these women give their students, the outrage they feel towards injustice, and the way they dare to use the limited power that they have.
