Summary
Taking up the ever-shifting cultural and political landscape in the United States, Presence of Mind addresses how power manifests itself within and across different social and educational terrain, covering a number of contemporary topics and polemics that are central to teaching educational theory and practice. Pepi Leistyna argues that it is imperative that both students and teachers take ownership of educational practice by developing theoretical frameworks that historically and socially situate the deeply embedded roots of racism, discrimination, violence, and disempowerment in this country to better understand their roles as educators and citizens
