Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Anti-oppressive education encompasses multiple approaches to learning that actively challenge different forms of what proponents describe as oppression. Anti-oppressive education is premised on the notion that many traditional and commonsense ways of engaging in "education" actually contribute to oppression in schools and society. It also relies on the notion that many "commonsense" approaches to education reform mask or exacerbate oppressive educational methods. The consequences of anti-oppressive education include a deep commitment to changing how educators conceptualize and engage in curriculum, pedagogy, classroom management and school culture. There is also an implication that institutional structure and policies must be transformed.show more
