Watch Episode 6 of Emancipatory Education Now

Emancipatory Education Now is a new student-led initiative at the SJSU Lurie College of Education that examines what emancipatory education – the critical evaluation of the systems and structures of oppression that maintain the status quo in our educational institutions – looks like in today’s society and advocates for the expansion of emancipatory education research, policies, and practices.
In this episode, Vinson leads a dialogue with Anne, Gabi, Jackie, and Leslye as they dive deeper into how schools and communities can create a safe and supportive school environment with a focus on LGBTQ+ youth.
