Anarchist Pedagogies

Robert H. Haworth ¹ 6 free download Anarchist Pedagogies free read ☆ 6 Important and challenging issues in the area of anarchism and education are presented in this history of egalitarian and free school practices From Francisco Ferrer's modern schools in Spain and the Work People's College in the United States to contemporary actions in developing free skools in the United Kingdom and Canada the. I picked up Judith Suissa s Anarchism and Education A Philosophical Perspective a few years back and was pretty disappointed While it did a good job explaining anarchism and raised some interesting points about the differences between libertarian and anarchist education it was just too philosophical and not practical enough for me When I saw that PM Press was publishing Anarchist Pedagogies Collective Actions Theories and Critical Reflections on Education I got very excited There is a real shortage of writings about anarchism and education It seems like most critical writing about schools learning and education comes from either social democratic or Marxist perspectives I read those books and take what I can but it s refreshing to see anti authoritarian discussions taking place consistently on the topic of education After having read Anarchist Pedagogies I can say that it met almost all of my expectations and will stand for many years as the best collection of writings on anarchism and educationTo start Robert H Haworth should be commended for putting together such a fine selection of writings which are on the whole of a very high uality As with any edited collection of writings by various authors there are stronger and weaker pieces and of course not everything will resonate with each reader Regardless of your specific interests public schools post secondary home schooling activism etc it is most likely that you will find something useful withinThe book is grouped into three main sections which are roughly ihistory ii here and now and iii theory I preferred the first two sections but that s mostly because I m an anarchist history teacher in a public school setting What follows are few brief highlights of some of my favourite piecesJustin Mueller kicks off the History section by providing a useful overview entitled Anarchism the State and the Role of Education Mueller s piece is the type which uickly and effectively raises numerous issues and covers a lot of ground in order to familiarize new readers to the topic This is followed by a pessimistic but grounded critiue by David Gabbard of attempts to meet social justice goals through compulsory schooling Saku Pinta s superb article on the IWW s Work Peoples College provides details on the working class education organized by Finnish immigrants from 1920 1940 While not explicitly anarchist the WPC is an excellent example the type of counter institutions needed to challenge capital and build skills of resistanceThe one article on the topic of deschooling is provided by Joseph Todd and it explores the ways in which homeschoolers are creating a counterpublic to debate and redefine the meaning of learning Todd argues that many deschoolers and unschoolers are already applying anarchist values whether consciously or not through their creation of networks The section on Anarchist Pedagogies in the Here and Now has a wide sampling of anarchist initiatives in alternative learning Matthew Weinstein takes an engaging looks at the training of activist street medics and considers it as a form of popular science Readers who are familiar with Summerhill School in England will be interested in the chapter on Paideia an anarchist free school in Spain Paideia has been running for 3 decades and serves as an example of educational self management where students direct learning organize food preparation resolve conflicts and run the school through assembliesJeff Shantz provides two solid selections to the collection One of which looks at the Anarchist Free Skool which operated for a few years in Toronto The other explains the purpose of the Windsor Workers Action Centre which has attempted to be a hub for class and community based resistance in Southern OntarioCaroline Kaltefleiter and Anthony Nocella round out the practical section with advice for anarchist academics on how to navigate the contradictions of working in the post secondary realm while maintaining a commitment to meaningful and radical political engagement While some of their issues are specific to the university setting much of what they address can apply to most teachers regardless of their settingPart 3 on Philosophical Perspectives and Theoretical Frameworks was definitely the least rewarding part of Anarchist Pedagogies for me While Abraham DeLeon raised some interesting ideas of anarchist education as a form of infiltration behind enemy lines other selections such as one on post structuralism were barely readable It was sadly humourous to find one selection calling for anarchist writing to be clear and accessible paired back to back with one of the densest most jargon filled pieces of writing I ve ever encountered Regardless of this criticism most selections in Anarchist Pedagogies were well written and could be used by the general publicThe only area which I wish Haworth s book could have addressed explicitly is the development of anarchist teaching practice within the public school system at the elementary and secondary levels Anarchists seem to be very good at writing critiues of the public school system and the system is well deserving of these critiues and they also can write academic pieces that are theoretical but my desire is to see thinking about actual pedagogy Maybe I m mistaken but it seems to me that there are probably anarchists working in public schools than in universities Also there are probably anarchists working in public schools than in alternative free schools We should develop ideas about putting anarchist ideas into practice in our classrooms where we encounter the largest number of members of our society It seems like we should be organizing where we are and where we can have the greatest impact All of this said Anarchist Pedagogies is a great book Its ideas should be shared and debated by anyone who is interested in the connection between learning and the struggle to build a world based on freedom euality and mutual aid

    Anarchist Pedagogies (READ) Many of the essays failed to piue my interest Some were hopelessly mired in obscure postmodern ideology; others touted the alleged benefits of alternative schooling systems with little examination of the ultimate effects on children's growth While I'm sympathetic to the project of anti authoritarian schooling there's to anarchism than validating the smallest inclination of a child's ego Saved from one star by the excellent essays
