I’m writing this knowing that my recent history about being consistent with blogs will indicate that any time I “recommit” to writing it inevitably ends with me disappearing from cyberspace for a while. In all honesty, I can’t do this by myself, and yet I’m nervous to ask others to write with me. Regardless, I feel the need to at least try to write more. To write about news, about my teaching, about my research, about conversations teachers are having, and about anything that fits within the purview of a blog written for radical educators.
Ideally, I want this site to be a site for all the teachers, educators and researchers who have felt their schools, departments, or administrators infringe on what they know to be the right and worthy thing to do. To those who refuse to teach in fear, who embrace the consequences that may or may not come based on teaching and being in classrooms in a worthy humanizing way: I hope this blog will remind you that you are not alone. The struggle for schools is at the center of both state hegemonic-capitalist-patriarchal-white supremacy as well as those committed to social justice. It is for this reason that we can never relinquish schools and classrooms. The fight for freedom, for radical love, must be on going. I hope I can help you do your part.
