Education as an Act of Self-Determination

On the debut episode of Educate 8:46, Miami University Professor Dr. Denise Taliaferro Baszile explains why education is ultimately an act of self-determination that can lead us all to a more equitable society. The purpose of education, in a revolutionary sense, she says, is to seek to know better. So that we might be better. So that we might do better. So that we might collectively breathe forth a new, more just world. Additional Resources: Mwalimu Shujaa, Too Much Schooling, Too Little Education Anna Julia Cooper, Voice From the South Carter G.
