“Lessons in Liberation is an abundant and generous offering, packed with resources to help us collectively build toward abolition in and out of the classroom. This excellent toolkit is a call to imagine, to act, to dream, to expand our notions of what education is and can be—and of the bold and radically nurturing society we can grow together. It’s an essential read for teachers, organizers, and students of all kinds!” —Maya Schenwar, co-author of Prison by Any Other Name and editor-in-chief of Truthout
Lessons in Liberation: An Abolitionist Toolkit for Educators offers entry points to build critical and intentional bridges between educational practice and the growing movement for abolition. Designed for educators, parents, and young people, this toolkit shines a light on innovative abolitionist projects, particularly in Pre-K–12 learning contexts.
The Education for Liberation Network & Critical Resistance Editorial Collective are a team of writers, educators, and thinkers from various backgrounds and social movements working toward abolition in our time.
