Using My ‘You Lie Moment’ to Theorize Persistent Resistance to Critical Multicultural Education
Keywords:critical multicultural education, persistent resistance, teacher education, multicultural education course, President Obama
AbstractIn this article I detail correspondences between a breach of decorum that occurred during a speech delivered by President Obama before a joint session of the United States Congress and an encounter between a teacher education student and me in a graduate-level multicultural education course. The encounter served as a powerful, albeit inadvertent, impetus to theorize the nature of persistent resistance to diversity and critical multicultural education in one teacher education unit.
