Gaining New Perspectives, Accepting Diversity, and Embracing Collective Thought: Revolutionizing Education with a Participatory Agenda
Philip Ray Jones, Ph.D.

This essay is a critical analysis of Julio Cammarota and Michelle Fine‟s text entitled Revolutionizing Education: Youth Participatory Action Research in Motion. The essay illuminates the idea of how the most innovative, creative, and transformative levels of research among students, educators, as well as all education professionals across the broad education field ultimately materialize as a result of “collaborative” inquiry among “all” participants within a research group. Moreover, this essay highlights Cammarota and Fine‟s call to all educators to acknowledge the transformative power of the “we” rather than the “me” in regard to research in the field, classroom instruction, and student learning on multifaceted levels across the broad educational spectrum.
