I would like to thank my wife, Samantha, and my daughter, Leyla: This book would not have been possible without their support. I would also thank all of my students who took part in this participatory action research project.
I am thankful to Antonia Darder and Kemal Inal for their help and solidarity that widened my horizons and supported my writing during this book project. A special thanks to Ole Skovsmose who shared his ideas and work with me throughout this project. Special appreciation goes to Douglas Vipond for his editorial suggestions and my colleague Jamie Snowden for reading the chapters. Finally, I would like to thank John Bennett and Jolanda Karada from Brill Sense for their support with this book.
