What is education for? Will schools always reproduce inequality? How can learning help build a better world for the global many? In this session we will step beyond the idea that limits education to good schools and good grades to examine the big questions that underpin education. With help from socialist theorists such as Antonio Gramsci and Paolo Freire we will discuss radical educational ideas and explore how we can transform our education system into one that promotes emancipatory learning for all.
