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, Gabi leads a dialogue with Anne, Jackie, Leslye, and Vinson as they dive deeper into the topic of ethnic studies and how the implementation of ethnic studies in education is empowering, engaging, and beneficial for all students.
The call to action for this episode: Reflect on and discuss a time from your K-12 experience where you learned a view of history that you later learned was untrue or didn’t portray the full story!
