Dr. Jean Kirshner discusses the work between classroom teachers in Colorado and Belize, Central America, which is described in recently published Routledge title, “Decolonizing Transcultural Teacher Education through Participatory Action Research.” It describes our collective journey in becoming vulnerable to each other.
