Not equality, not equity, but Liberation!

“Liberation is a praxis : the action and reflection of men and women upon their world in order to transform it.”

― Paulo Freire

If we are looking to transform education, we must look beyond equality and equity and focus on liberation. To dreamscape and lovescape is to free ourselves from the structural oppression that currently occupies our education systems. Equality and equity are not enough. We must pursue liberation.To do this, we must unlearn and confront our own miseducation, our own indoctrination, and our own subjugation. It is only by engaging in this struggle that we will raise our consciousness, and empower ourselves to engage in this transformation.
