Emancipatory Education Now is a new student-led initiative at the SJSU Lurie College of Education that examines what emancipatory education – the critical evaluation of the systems and structures of oppression that maintain the status quo in our educational institutions – looks like in today’s society and advocates for the expansion of emancipatory education research, policies, and practices. In the first episode, you can learn more about our student co-hosts through their name stories:
- Anne Lockmiller – Counselor Education
- Gabi Gupta – Sociology
- Jackie Rivas Lopez – Child & Adolescent Development
- Leslye Tinson – Ed.D. Leadership Program
- Vinson Vu – Business and Child & Adolescent Development
They also share a preview of some of the topics they plan to discuss in more detail later this semester and begin a dialogue regarding the implementation of ethnic studies at the California State University and K-12 levels. A few additional resources they mention include:
- California Assembly Bill 1460
- California Assembly Bill 331
- Other People’s Children by Lisa Delpit
- We Want to Do More Than Survive by Bettina Love
- Discipline and Punish by Michel Foucault
- Pushout by Monique Morris
