Inspired by the life and work of Bill Ayers, particularly his advice to "teach into the contradiction', Diving In reflects the intellectual adventures that Ayers has always encouraged those around him to undertake. Written by leading educators and activitsts, the collected chapters within this book are as diverse as the myriad contradictions that teachers encounter in their day-to-day practice and their out-of-class musings. The contributors use themes suggested by Ayer's work to open up new perspectives and discourses on key issues in education, such as education as a human right, participatory democracy, social justice, and liberation. Diving In offers much-needed hope at a time when teachers need it the most.
