Contributions to a Marxist Critical Pedagogy of Becoming: Centering the Critique of the Gotha Programme: Part Two
Malott, Curry; Ford, Derek R.
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v13 n2 p83-112 Oct 2015
Part two: This article is the second part of a project concerned with developing a Marxist critical pedagogy that moves beyond a critique of capital and toward a communist future. The article performs an educational reading of Marx's Critique of the Gotha Programme in order to delineate what a Marxist critical pedagogy of becoming communist might look like. The reading is not, of course, an attempt to find some key to the transition to communism. While the historical specificity of the text is attended to, the authors find certain guideposts in Marx's critique that can help revolutionary educators think and act through the contemporary crisis of capitalism. At the end of the article, the authors delineate six key components of a Marxist critical pedagogy of becoming. [For Part One: "Contributions to a Marxist Critical Pedagogy: Revisiting Marx's Humanism," see EJ1043103.]
