This volume introduces a Quebec teachers' collective, La maîtresse d'école, recounting their history and presenting a sampler of their pedagogical writings.
This book highlights the collective's seemless movement back and forth between theory and practice. It combines a lucid socialist critique of the education system in Quebec with the most concrete illustrations imaginable of an alternative practice for the everyday teacher. At the same time, it offers an education policy designed to accelerate progress towards a democratic socialist alternative founded on such practice.
Building a People's Curriculum offers a refreshing introduction to alternative pedagogical practice and curriculum objectives.
An Our Schools/Our Selves book.
