Example text

It is this human conscience that liberates us from being the shadow of a person, the specter of a teacher, and a wee obscurity. EXPELLING THE SHADOW AND ENTERING THE LIGHT Jean Valjean is more than a literary creation. He is a personification of the possibilities of living and teaching with integrity, humanity, and conscience. Early in the novel, Valjean asks himself - asks all of us - to consider the following: Let us have compassion on the chastened. Who, alas! are we ourselves? who am I who speak to you?

It’s a diminishing of our soul; a lessoning of that which makes us truly human. Prior to this revelation, Hugo explains that Valjean “was only a phantom” (p. 95). Hugo goes on to describe the moment of Valjean’s awakening from these spiritual, psychological, and ethical shadow lands: Excess of misfortune, we have remarked, had made him, in some sort, a visionary. This then was like a vision. He veritably saw this Jean Valjean, this ominous face, before him. He was on the point of asking himself who that man was, and he was horror-stricken by it.

In what ways is curriculum and instruction used to train students to become passive or subordinate citizens oppressed by societal regulations, restrictions, and obligations? Or in what ways are we educators empowering them with tools and values they need to participate fully, actively, and meaningfully in society? By bringing them to life, Valjean has been and continues to be a powerful resource for reflection and a role model of more liberating and ethical pedagogical practices. 33 CHAPTER 3 ENCOUNTERING OXYMORON While Valjean is buried beneath the shadows of merciless public laws and prejudices against the criminal label attached to him by government officials, the light of his inner self goes unnoticed by most people.
