Education Across the Prison Walls: Critical Pedagogy & The Prison Classroom

October 20, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Many educators and students experience a common assumption from guards, administrators and our own colleagues and friends: that people in prison are less informed or less interested in the most critical issues of our time. In fact, we know this to not be true as incarcerated students across the nation have written legislation, created policy and formed inside-out organizations that impact their communities. Education scholar Henry Giroux says “All education is an introduction to the future”. This panel will ask what kind of future are we building inside our classrooms in prison? How does the framework of critical pedagogy shape what we teach and learn inside? Moderated by Simone Waller.
