the CLASSroom project

In Uncategorized on December 3, 2012 at 6:24 pm

Check out this video of our project. Mark Vagle and I began the CLASSroom project in 2010 with a dozen or so practicing teachers in a 2-day workshop about social class, classism, anti-classist practices and policies, and a vision of classrooms and schools as amazing, creative, empowering spaces where one’s class background doesn’t determine opportunities in school or the kind of education and treatment one receives.

Now we’ve worked with more than 1,000 educators in Georgia, and we are constantly inspired by what people are doing to make sure schools don’t mirror the unjust society that we live in. Mark is at the University of Minnesota and beginning a parallel project up in the blustery north – and we can’t wait to see where this unpredictable and exciting journey takes us to next.
