By Wayne Au. From Haymarket Books:
In A Marxist Education: Learning to Change the World, professor and education activist Wayne Au traces both his own development as a Marxist educator, as well as the development of Marxist educational theory. Arguing that dialectical materialism is at the heart of Marxist theory, Au uses dialectics to not only analyze the relationship between capitalism and schools, but also to understand teaching, learning, and curriculum. In the process, A Marxist Education challenges the idea that Marxism is Eurocentric, reclaims noted educators such as Lev Vygotsky and Paulo Freire as being within the Marxist tradition, and integrates racial and feminist traditions into analyses of education, consciousness, and power.
