Now that’s what we call Critical Pedagogy!

There is a marvellous story over on the commune website (see blog roll) about how an ESOL teacher (Sally Haywill) and her students succesfully overturned a college decision to deny them creche facilities. This is a fabulous story, not only of the real possibilities of defending our rights as teachers and students, but also of the empowering effect of taking collective action. When we at MTG think about critical pedagogy, this is exactly the idea we have of it; ordinary people transforming themselves and their lives. Our collective “hats off” to Sally and her students.
