Educating for Eco-Justice and Community by C. Bowers

In this book, Chet Bowers shows why EVEN progressive theories of education unwittingly reinforce belief systems that are hostile to environmental care and community health. I believe this is extremely important for all of us, especially those who care about education, to understand. This is a super dense book, definitely NOT an easy read, and, to be completely honest to you, I was really only able to process the intro. I hope that someone out there finds it valuable and worth diving deeper into, and is able to bring this important thinking into your work.
