April 16th, 2014, 6:30pm-8pm: Discuss classic texts on alternative models of education and assess their relevance for creating liberatory forms of education in the 21st century. Part of the Thinking Critically about Society Seminar Series.
Compare these radical models with our personal experiences of modern education systems. What would it take to make education truly empowering and liberating? Do our schools approximate these visions, or do we need a revolution in education?
