Global Activism and Social Transformation vis-à-vis Dominant Forms of Economic Organization: Critical Education within Afro-Brazilian and Transnational Pedagogical Praxis
Rossatto, César
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v12 n3 p228-260 Dec 2014-Jan 2015
Masses of colonial workers are situating their free-for-all labor efforts in a global context due to dominant forms of organization based on a neoliberalist and corporate market economy. New social movements that show concern for democracy and human rights are challenging capitalist priorities of "efficiency" and exploitation. In some places, the representatives of popular movements are taking the reins of state power. Many of these movements are emerging to bridge national identities and boundaries in solidarity with transnational class, gender, and ethnic struggles. The ideology of market competition has become more entrenched in schools placing emphasis on the effects of whiteness from an historical Afro-Brazilian political experience; this article explores implications drawn upon the myriad of social struggles shaping students' lives and communities, which are based on principles of justice, ethics, access, and emancipation.
