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 this episode, Jackie leads a dialogue with Anne, Gabi, Leslye, and Vinson as they discuss restorative approaches that decolonize education and are trauma-informed.
The calls to action for this episode:
1) Explore your mindfulness/ self care – it’s for everyone!
2) Critically think of personal experiences: what went well, where was there room from growth, what was something you needed/wanted in your academic experience?
3) Connect with yourself/others
