Education and Capitalism
Struggles for Learning and Liberation
Based on their own experiences, teachers across the country offer ideas on resolving the crisis in education.
A conservative, bipartisan consensus dominates the discussion about what’s wrong with our schools and how to fix them. It offers “solutions” that scapegoat teachers, vilify unions, and impose a market mentality. But in each case, students lose. This book, written by teacher-activists, speaks back to that elite consensus and offers an alternative vision of learning for liberation.
