Education for Liberation
The perspective of this course is to begin to explore the cultural shifts that will be necessary in moving from traditional educational models towards liberating educational models. Systemic change will need to address a variety of situations and look at the basic questions of: Who educates? On whose behalf? Towards what end? The techniques to be explored shall include community organizing, coalition building, lobbying and change issues in an educational bureaucracy. Students will look at social, political, and economic dynamics which propel or impede advocacy efforts.
