ANTI-OPPRESSIVE EDUCATION The question for educational reformers is not whether schools should be addressing issues of oppression. Schools are always and already addressing oppression, often by reinforcing it or at least allowing it to continue playing out unchallenged, and often without realizing that they are doing so. The question needs to be how schools should be differently addressing issues of oppression. And therein lies the reason for re-centering education on issues of social justice, that is, on a social movement against oppression.
Teacher Education Programs 9 from theories and methods other than psychological ones? , they also ask, What are different ways to learn, use, and critique the disciplines, as well as different ways to think disciplinarily? , they also ask, What are ways that current educational research makes only certain ways of teaching desirable and doable and thinkable? They tell us that teachers and students need to see knowledge, especially the official knowledge of schools, as political and partial. Particularly regarding the standards for learning, they tell us that students do need to learn toward the standards (since the standards reflect what knowledge and skills are valued in society), but also need to think critically about the partial nature of the standards.
While some people assume that schools will improve when they are held accountable for teaching certain standards of knowledge and skills, research suggests that disagreement exists over what such standards should consist of and whether current standards will challenge social inequities. Furthermore, research suggests that the official views of what and how schools should teach often reflect the perspectives, experiences, and values of only certain people in society, especially those who have traditionally been privileged or currently wield political influence.
