Critical theorists have long been united in their quest to empower the disenfranchised and to deconstruct injustices and inequalities (Freire, 1981; McLaren, 1994). Schools, in particular, seem to serve certain groups of people over others. Schools become "sorting mechanisms in which select groups of students are favored on the basis of race, class, and gender" (McLaren, 1994, p. 168). Students within the dominant culture know how to speak, act, dress, and think in ways that move them ahead in society. These students gain such cultural capital (Apple, 1979), while students outside the dominant culture are often left without the means to gain entry into the culture of power (Delpit, 1995).
