This is a page I tore out of a notebook, put in a pile of papers, and then forgot about. I wrote this down at some point in 1996-1997 while student teaching. I am doubtful I was reading Foucault directly; I’m betting this quote was in another book (Ira Shor? bell hooks? Peter McLauren? ) How long before I started doodling?
I don’t believe that the question of ‘who exercises power’ can be resolved unless that other question ‘how does it happen’ is resolved at the same time.
