This year’s Marxism 2013 conference in Melbourne over the Easter weekend is organising a School of Rebellion for young people and children to participate in. Jorge Jorquera in Socialist Alternative explains the concept.
The School of Rebellion isn’t about testing and ‘achievement’ but about learning and agency. It’s not a school, like every other, where education is bound to commerce and productivity but rather one where knowledge and learning are connected to justice and authentic democracy.
