Occupy Education: Three Great Projects and Pieces of Reading

In a moment of exciting but also confusing shifts in political action and discussion, I wanted to post links to a few sites and articles which have been helping me process many of the events taking place, but also challenging me to ask new questions, and to think about my role in the burgeoning conversations. In particular, these pieces have been pushing me to think about the links between public education and corporate domination, and what our collective role might be in dismantling those ties, and imagining new kinds of learning. These pieces have been motivating me to move beyond discussion into realms of real risk and forward movement. Please check the links out:
