The education system plays a contradictory role in society. On the one hand, public schools are central to reproducing the capitalist system. On the other hand, they have been one of the most contested battlegrounds in struggles against oppression and for working-class liberation. The pursuit for human freedom demands an analysis of this contradiction and a plan of action, which is what this panel of two distinguished Marxist educators, Jesse Hagopian and Wayne Au, will set out to do.
