Saturday Workshop: Capitalism and the K-12 School System
Saturday July 12, 2-5PM
Teachers: David Eisnitz and Kyla Walters
This workshop will examine the role of the K-12 public education system in American
capitalism. We will discuss U.S. public schools as a system for producing worker-citizens and
as a system of social control. Topics will include the role of schools in producing and
reproducing inequality, in regulating youth labor and the labor market, and in teaching
dominant norms and values. We will go on to consider how schools can be a potential site of
liberation, community, and progressive social change.
