The radical reconstruction of society envisioned by the Occupy movement, with people taking responsibility for the world we live in through horizontal democratic structures and relationships, requires that we educate ourselves so that we can make good and informed decisions about the issues that confront us. But traditional educational structures are often hierarchical, and best serve the goal of forming citizens who are compliant, rather than participatory. What should an Occupy educational model look like? How have Occupations around the country been addressing this need for self-education? What is, should, and will be the role of Occupy Boston’s Free School University working group in this effort?
David, Eden, and possibly other members of OB’s FSU working group will be on the show to discuss. Call-ins from the community will be invited.
