Imagining the Future: What Anarchism Brings to Education
Logue, Jennifer; Mayo, Cris
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v43 n1 p159-165 Feb 2009
The authors review Judith Suissa's provocative book, "Anarchism and Education: A Philosophical Perspective," a text that demonstrates the central role of education in anarchist theory. Suissa compellingly argues against the charges that anarchism is overly idealistic and impractical, instead seeing its potential for innovative and liberatory educational change. The authors suggest, however, that an enhanced conversation among critical pedagogy, antiracist pedagogy and anarchist thinking on education can help to show both the continued relevance of radical and creative thinking, and that anarchist thought has been part of the development of oppositional, critical, collaborative, teaching and learning projects.
