Join Lurie College for a Conversation on Abolitionist Teaching with Dr. Bettina Love

SJSU Lurie College of Education Conversation with Bettina Love

Join the SJSU Connie L. Lurie College of Education on Tuesday, November 10, from 5-6pm for a conversation with Dr. Bettina Love, who is an Associate Professor of Educational Theory & Practice at the University of Georgia, the author of We Want To Do More Than Survive: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom, and one of the founders of the Abolitionist Teaching Network, which develops and supports educators to fight injustice within their schools and communities.

Dr. Love’s talk will discuss the struggles and the possibilities of committing ourselves to an abolitionist goal of educational freedom and intersectional justice, so we all can move beyond what she calls the educational survival complex. Abolitionist Teaching is built on the creativity, imagination, boldness, ingenuity, and rebellious spirit and methods of abolitionists to demand and fight for an educational system and world where all students are thriving, not simply survivin.
