This talk contributes something new to the existing literature on anarchism and education. It is essentially a synthesis of various anarchist approaches to education, and Cindy links these approaches to larger projects and movements for social change. She describes and embraces alternatives to traditional education—alternatives to the alternatives, even. Much has already been published on the problems with traditional education, so it's refreshing to read about Cindy's experiences with activities that we might not necessarily have understood as educational projects. She emphasizes that these examples of educating for freedom are more than just different ways of doing education; they are necessary parts of the process of prefiguring, right now, what we want our world to look like.
