Being pressured to have interaction with youngsters her personal age is a brand new and alarming proposition for Raleigh, yet probably it's simply what she wishes - or perhaps it will probably aid her locate what she wishes - or even it could aid her to achieve that what she wishes has been along with her all alongside.

225). Moreover, Britzman (2003) states that our identities might be “over determined by history, place and sociality,” and that they are formed through the discourses we reject or those we accept. Britzman (2003) further argues, “learning to teach means coming to terms with particular orientations toward knowledge, power and identity” (p. 33). Jon expanded sensitively on some of his ideas regarding the role of identity in the designing of his courses during the 1990s. He remembers: In the early nineties, when we ran a series of summer institutes on multicultural education we brought in guest lecturers to engage the students in rethinking their own positions, identities, and sense of privilege.

Many of these people at the OISE were very actively involved at the time in changing school policy and practices, particularly with the local School Board. It was also out of this group that a research network was formed. I began to realize that Jon was choosing to tell me stories that emphasized his developing understanding that it is not one person who affects the development of scholarship, but it is, rather, a supportive community of scholars who contribute to the growth for all members of the community.

Individuals use and misuse their power to promote or to bring an end to racism in the institutions of education. ’ An awareness of one’s own privilege is as essential as awareness of one’s lack of privilege. Awareness led Jon, and me, to think critically about the interconnectedness of all aspects of our lives: race, class, religion, gender, and sexual orientation. The process of awareness and critical thinking is essential, especially in a pluralistic, multicultural society. Mallea (1987) similarly states: Probably the critical theorists’ most important contribution, admittedly not an entirely novel one, is their insistence that educational systems are not as autonomous as many commentators previously would have had us believe.
