The core argument of Jean Anyonâs classic Radical Possibilities is deceptively simple: if we do not direct our attention to the ways in which federal and metropolitan policies maintain the poverty that plagues communities in American cities, urban school reform as currently conceived isÂ doomed to fail. With every chapterÂ thoroughly revised and updated, thisÂ edition picks up where the 2005 publication left off, including a completely new chapter detailing how three decades ofÂ political decisions leading up to theÂ âGreat Recessionâ produced anÂ economic crisis of epic proportions.Â Â By tracing the root causes of the financial crisis, Anyon effectively demonstrates the concrete effects of economic decision-making on the education sector, revealing in particular the disastrous impacts of these policies on black and Latino communities.
Going beyond lament, Radical Possibilities offers those interested in a better future for the millions of Americaâs poor families a set of practical and theoretical insights. Expanding on her paradigm for combating educational injustice, Anyon discusses the Occupy Wall Street movement as a recent example of popular resistance in this new edition, set against a larger framework of civil rights history.Â A ringing call to action, Radical Possibilities reminds readers that throughout U.S. history, equitable public policies have typically been created as a result of the political pressure brought to bear by social movements. Ultimately, Anyonâs revelations teach us that the current moment contains its own very real radical possibilities.
