We will continue the discussion we started over a week ago on the philosophy of education for this class. What is education? What is school/schooling? Are these terms in opposition to each other or do they compliment each other? We will look at different perspectives on knowledge, education, school and learning and have an open dialogue about this. We will also look at the debates surrounding public schools, charter schools and various alternative approaches to school and learning. In addition, we will look at the unique experiment in “popular education” led by the Sandinistas in Nicaragua in the 1980s. Bring yourself, bring a friend, bring a family member and bring some ideas for this exciting class! As always, dinner will be served at 6:30pm and class will be from 7:00-8:30.
