Organize or Die: Farm School Pedagogy and the Political Ecology of the Agroecological Transition in Rural Haiti
Moore, Sophie Sapp
Journal of Environmental Education, v48 n4 p248-259 2017
This article examines the political and pedagogical role of the farm school in Haiti's largest and oldest peasants' movement, the Peasants' Movement of Papaye (MPP). It draws upon ongoing ethnographic research with MPP as well as documentary and historical analyses of agrarian politics in Haiti to situate the movement's land-based decolonial political praxis in a political ecology of education framework, centering concepts of participation, conscientization, and autonomy. I use three key pedagogical principles in MPP's agroecological education program to illustrate the micropolitical processes by which smallholders negotiate processes of agrarian transformation: decentralization, social process methodology, and the good acroecologist model.
