Haphazard Beyond Pedagogy Explanation #3

To be as concise as possible, one of my biggest challenges in regards to educational reform is the language and method of discourse. Namely, our method of discourse has become diluted by words of half-meanings. We have locked ourselves into a standstill because of our over reliance on certain concepts and terminologies.

That being said, Beyond Pedagogy is a reading group comprised of educators and those with a vested interest in the field of education. We will not be reading standard education texts. We’re reading broadly but we’re reading purposefully. We’re discussing education but on other fields’ terms.

We’re inviting you to read these texts too. Where can such a “revolutionary ‘exodus’” take us? Let’s find out.
