Community Classrooms: A Radical Learning Model

Communities hold the strength, stories, and spaces to transform oppressive urban education systems: it is time to honor this power. In this session, we will engage with a model of community-centered learning for both students and teachers that redefines the role of the neighborhood and achieves what is possible only when community partnerships transform academic spaces: radically re-imagined urban classrooms that restore all that is possible with student voice, ownership, and empowerment.
