Confronting power: how can we transform political education?
Five people involved in political education projects look at ways of creating approaches to political education that can assist in the development of a culturally inclusive, participatory and democratic left politics. Transforming political education means confronting issues of power within the left itself, as well as an ongoing reckoning with issues of class and race both inside and outside the left. It also means re-booting the radical tradition of adult education, and working together to develop new and better ways of organising, convening and building solidarities. Contributors draw on their experiences with ACORN, Voices that Shake!, Platform, Adult Education 100 and The World Transformed.
