I’d like to acknowledge the support of the DePauw University Faculty Development Program, which provided three students and me with the funding to carry this project out. I’d also like to give a warm thanks to these students—Savannah Jo Wilcek, Anneliese Waalkes, and Clayton Cooprider—for their incredible help throughout this process. Series editors Brad Porfilio and Bill Reynolds provided important guidance throughout the conception and production process.
A few chapters in the book originally appeared elsewhere. Peter McLaren’s entry was published as “Revolutionary Critical Pedagogy: Staking a Claim Against the Macrostructural Unconscious,” in Critical Education; Barbara Applebaum’s entry on truth was first published in the 2016 Philosophy of Education Yearbook; Glenn Rikowski’s chapter on privatization was first published in the Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies.
Finally, I’d like to acknowledge Jodi Menke for helping me set up my voicemail as well as the students in my spring 2017 Radical Philosophy and Education seminar for providing the impetus for this book.
