Corporate Deform

I designed (and, now, revised) this poster to respond to the heavy-hand­ed and bla­tant role cor­po­ra­tions play in shap­ing our edu­ca­tion­al poli­cies. Edu­ca­tion should be shaped accord­ing to the needs of the human com­mu­ni­ty, not cor­po­rate prof­it. We want all chil­dren, youth and adults to have access to a qual­i­ty edu­ca­tion that enhances our/their lives and the com­mu­ni­ty as a whole. List­ed are just some of the poli­cies that move us away from that goal. If you would like to read a tremen­dous new book on this sub­ject, check out Mise­d­u­cat­ing for the Glob­al Econ­o­my: How Cor­po­rate Pow­er Dam­ages Edu­ca­tion and Sub­verts Stu­dents’ Futures, hot off the press, July 2018, by Ger­ald Coles. It is a must-read for any­one want­i­ng to under­stand edu­ca­tion today.

 

I learn and am inspired by your comments!
