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.
—  Joe Kincheloe, “Exposing The Technocratic Perversion of Education”
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.

A series of articles published in the journal Critical Inquiry (1991) served as a manifesto for the movement of critical constructivism in various disciplines, including the natural sciences. Not only truth and reality, but also "evidence", "document", "experience", "fact", "proof", and other central categories of empirical research (in physics, biology, statistics, history, law, etc.) reveal their contingent character as a social and ideological construction. Thus, a "realist" or "rationalist" interpretation is subjected to criticism. Kincheloe's political and pedagogical notion (above) has emerged as a central articulation of the concept. While recognizing the constructedness of reality, many representatives of this critical paradigm deny philosophy the task of the creative construction of reality. They eagerly criticize realistic judgments, but they do not move beyond analytic procedures based on subtle tautologies. They thus remain in the critical paradigm and consider it to be a standard of scientific philosophy per se.

I’m just so madly in love with this band. Ariel and Shawn are both so beautiful. And the message in this song is so great! I know people have a problem with their cussing, but I think it helps drive their point home. I can’t wait to see what they come out with next!
