Schooling & Cultures: Issue 2 – coming 2019!

Are you 16-18 years old and interested in education and decolonisation?

Decolonising Education are running discussions with young people in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow on the impact of colonial legacies on the education system. How does racism present itself in our school systems, and how does this impact young people?

Decolonising Education will lead the production of Issue 2 of Schooling and Cultures.

Decolonising Education want issue 2 to reflect the voices of young people and their perspectives on education in the UK. They are looking to source contributors from around the UK so the publication is reflective of all marginalised voices.

Decolonising Education is an independent organisation, with aims to better equip parents, students and teachers with the knowledge and tools to navigate through the education system.

Launch of Schooling & Culture Volume 2, Issue 1: The State We’re In

Education reforms have disfigured relationships and intentions built on care and learning by preferencing the data and competition inherent in neoliberalism. And yet, here we are, refusing to be intimidated by the precarity which typifies our time. Schooling & Culture is a new (and old) journal that disrupts a culture of individualism, competition and surveillance by claiming a new collective position within, and outside of, education, through self-representation and lived experience. It is here to initiate dialogue, start support networks, and share critical praxis in traditional and non-traditional sites of education. Produced on a voluntary basis by and for teachers, educators and other cultural practitioners, Schooling & Culture continues a project that began at the Cockpit Arts workshop in 1978, stemming from Stuart Hall’s Centre for Cultural Studies. We invite you to continue the project and contribute to the next issue at our series of launch events for The State We’re In, the first issue in 3 decades.
