School Is the Opposite of Education
School reform is written and talked about very frequently in the media. People are supposed to think satisfactory alternatives to the zombie reforms – reforms that were worthless, that died, as it were, after being punched to death, those deceptive, ineffectual modes – not different actually, from the previous mode; being done again and again, repeatedly, over and over, called by different names, Common Core, for one –that those are alternatives; that those – any of them – will at all repair the damage that is school. As workers on the Left can we describe the study teach learn process/es that are good for us, that do not reinstate our oppressors' structure as we try to release ourselves from THEIR confinement of us? Our discussion of education will be led by Norma Harrison, a candidate for the Berkeley Board of Education and a member of the State Central Committee of the Peace and Freedom Party
