If you would have told me at 15 that I would be playing mainstage at Warped Tour I would have told you only in my dreams. Nine years later, that dream became a reality. Thank you #IconArmy and everyone who made this possible. I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for the support of my friends, family, my lovely fiance, and of course our very dedicated fans. This has been a summer I will never forget <3

Iven Kincheloe (1928 - 1958)

Kincheloe was one of the original three pilots to develop and test the X-15.  He was a test pilot in many of the Century Series of jets (F-100, F-102, F-102, F-104, F-105, and F-106).  Kincheloe was killed during a flight in an F-104 at Edwards Air Force Base in 1958.

Knowledge taken from the subjective world of intuition, insight, human-based learning, and lived experience is not viewed as real knowledge—it is “unverified.” Values are viewed as emotional responses and are viewed as the opposite of that which is “factual.” The proceeding points constitute a specific, value-laden position. Yet, it is this position which is defined as objective. All positions which disagree with it are subjective and thus inferior. In this way the culture of positivism has established the rules for inquiry in modern society.

Kincheloe (2008) argues for a fundamental rethinking and deep reconceptualization of the purposes of schooling to include consideration of:

- what human beings are capable of achieving
- the role of social, cultural, and political in shaping human identity
- the relationship between community and schooling
-the ways that power operates to create purposes for schooling that are not necessarily in the best interests of the children that attend them
- how students and teachers might relate to knowledge
- the ways schooling affects the lives of students from marginalized groups
- the organization of schooling and the relationship between teachers and learners.

Critical thinking is by nature an active process which encourages individuals to examine contextually the meaning of the information encountered so as to better understand the world and to contribute to the control of their own lives. If these assertions are valid, then the culture of positivism takes a specific political position, as it serves as an impediment to this process.
