ANNOTATION

Teaching for Change: Popular Education and the Labor Movement is the first book to capture the stories and experiences of popular educators in the U.S. labor movement. From the Highlander Center in Tennessee to the Justice for Janitors campaign in Los Angeles, from the National Labor College in Maryland to the Avondale Shipyard workers of Louisiana, popular education has played a critical role in organizing workers, developing new leaders, and strengthening labor and community alliances. While drawing from the rich history of popular educators nationally and internationally, popular educators today are forging a new path based on the changing needs and conditions of workers and unions. The authors write in the Introduction: A primary purpose of this book is to draw from a broad cross-section of the labor educators who are using popular education in their work, and to promote an environment where we can learn from one another. There is no unanimous opinion on what constitutes popular education, nor a uniform popular education methodology that is consistently applied in practice. The contents of the book is divided into nine chapters: History of Popular Education, Organizing, Leadership Development, Labor-Commuity Alliances, Popular Theater and Culture, Economics Education, Workplace Health and Safety, Popular Education in the Classroom, and Experiences from the North and South. There were twenty-nine contributers to the book. It concludes with a chapter on Resources.
