Change life! Change society! These precepts mean nothing without the production of an appropriate space…New social relationships call for a new space, and vice versa. —Henri Lefebvre, The Production of Space

This blog aims to be a resource for educators who desire to realize within their very classrooms a new space. The new educational space that is envisioned and fostered here is one of intelligence, creativity, justice, inclusion, courage, openness, and, perhaps most importantly, equality. It is a space, moreover, that consciously extends out into life and society.


Judith Suissa

My decision to go public as an anarchist educator was catalyzed by reading Judith Suissa’s book Anarchism and Education: A Philosophical Perspective in 2006. Reading this book made me realize to what a profound extent I had been formed at the anarchist free school I attended as a young man. Page after page, the book vividly reminded me of the values that, it turned out, would so form me as an educator as well. So, I am deeply grateful to her. You can order this wonderful book directly from PM Press.
