Building Education for the Commons
Imagine, a university run by professors in the form of direct democracy. Imagine a university with more professors than administrators (who function, as they do in the Neoliberal academy, as puppets for the wealthy Boards of Trustees). Imagine a university committed to global justice, democracy, education access for all social, ethnic, and economic classes. Imagine debt free (and ultimately free) education. Imagine a university who sided with the environment and not greedy corporations. Imagine entering into spaces of empowerment. Imagine professors and researchers uniting with workers, and workers with researchers and professors. Imagine a school educating researchers about how to dismantle patriarchy with a constructive praxis created through itself.
