View Schooling the World for Free—Ends Feb. 12.
Steve Hargadon writes about an upcoming interview with filmmaker and unschooling advocate Carol Black. I wrote about Carol and her work here, to learn more. Steve asks you to join him on
Tuesday, February 5th, for a live and interactive FutureofEducation.com conversation with returning guest Carol Black on her essay: "Occupy Your Brain: On Power, Knowledge, and the Re-Occupation of Common Sense."
I previously interviewed Carol about her hugely thought-provoking film, Schooling the World, which Carol has generously agreed to make available again for free viewing between now and the 12th of February.
The film is at https://vimeo.com/32012579 (password is STW2013), and looks at the often-devastating impacts of Western-style schooling in the developing world, particularly in Northern India.
In "Occupy Your Brain," Carol states, "[a]s our climate heats up, as mountaintops are removed from Orissa to West Virginia, as the oceans fill with plastic and soils become too contaminated to grow food, as the economy crumbles and children go hungry and the 0.001% grows so concentrated, so powerful, so wealthy that democracy becomes impossible, it’s time to ask ourselves; who’s educating us? To what end?"
