One of the greatest challenges for students of critical education theory is making the connection between the theory and its practical application. Critical education theory is personal and political; it can be uncomfortable and freeing, while at the same time being challenging and transforming. Ultimately, critical educational theory is useful. Written in accessible language, this edited collection presents readers with different views of and insights into the topic and illustrates how to connect theory and practice to create a different vision of public education. This is the perfect text for undergraduate and graduate students of education.
