From The Art of Critical Pedagogy - Duncan-Andrade and Morrell (2008)
"What is revolutionary love? How is it practiced in the context of education? And how can teachers be taught to love in this way?"
"First of all we feel that revolutionary love is the love that is strong enough to bring about radical change in individual students, classrooms, school systems and the larger society that controls them... something else will be required of teachers to achieve the kinds of outcomes described in this book. That something else is not easy to predict, nor is it easy to quantify. It looks like endless dedication, an unyielding belief in the brilliance and potential of every student, and the commitment to stop at nothing to get kids to learn. It demands the energy and passion to present learning as an amazing opportunity for young people to prepare themselves to be engaged citizens and social actors."
