"The pragmatic radical needs to know of such contradictions and fractures within systems for where there are contradictions there are opportunities to move. The curriculum guideline that seeks greater interactivity between students can become powerful cover for the radical teacher in the crossfire of conflicting ideologies and pedagogies within the school. The system has provided scriptures which can be cited against its deeper self. Its inherent schizophrenia becomes a virtue for the innovating teacher."
