Occupy Education: School should be a time and place for students to discover and become themselves. At the same time, they should learn to become contributing members of something bigger than themselves: A classroom community, a group of friends, a family, a neighborhood, a polis.
As educators, therefore we must aspire toward building classroom communities around this ideal: where each person is encouraged to grow and thrive in harmony with others.
See my blog post: Part I — “Education is political”: The people and the polis .
I strongly agree we the whole statement above! Schools should be based on community of individuals learning and developing themselves while learning to be part of a larger community!
